I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in June 2016.

Before the diagnosis, I always had constipation. Doctors at school kept putting me on anti-medication for stomach pains without any improvement, I was referred to Kenyatta National Hospital for a second opinion where biopsy results showed I had stage four colon cancer.

Immediately, doctors told me I needed surgery which was followed by intense chemotherapy that I have been undergoing at Texas Cancer Centre.

Being diagnosed with Colon cancer broke my heart. I did not think I would join my classmates during graduation from campus. However, upon starting my chemo treatment, I regained strength enough to be part of the graduands.

I am also grateful to the team at TCC for walking through this journey with me. They are a dedicated team who will give their all to see that a patient has received the best care they need.
