Forgive My Aunt's Family And Show Them Light So That They Can Learn To Love Each Other- A Boy Writes

A 17-year old boy admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has left netizens in tears after narrating his story to the media.

While speaking to Citizen TV, Michael Otieno, a sickle cell anaemia patient, revealed that he has been battling the disease since childhood and it has not been easy for him.

The disease has made to be outside school for almost a year now. He used to take himself to the hospital in Narok until he was transferred to KNH in an ambulance three months ago since the doctors got tired of treating him.

The boy revealed the most disappointing thing about his condition is that one never fully recovers even if an operation is done. In his search for treatment, he has met some medics who told him that he wouldn't make it to 18 years.

Michael has also been writing some notes in his stay in hospital to help distract him from the pain that he goes through. He has been praying to God to help him endure the pain that he undergoes. In one of the notes, Micheal revealed that his relatives abandoned him and he has asked God to forgive them. "Forgive my aunt's family and show them light so that they can learn to love each other," he wrote.

Micheal is yet to undergo a surgery since he doesn't have enough blood in his body. We wish him a quick recovery.
