Medical workers at a past function.
Citizen TV Journalist Nimrod Taabu has reported heartbreaking details of what kenyans out there are passing through living with chronic diseases, some of them curable while some are unfortunately incurable. These Kenyans are said to be living in untold pain, with thei mystery made worse with the inaccessibility of medical services to all Kenyans especially those diseases which are costly to treat. Some patients have even been abandoned by family and friends.
The TV station has reported of many cases but for the sake of this article, we will look at a summary of three patients. The first one is Caroline Muthoni from Kiambu county who is living with cancer after doctors removed her b_ reast due to cancer. He situation is compounded with the fact that she cannot afford medicine for the cancer that is "eating" her life away.
Another patient featured is Magdalene from machakos who has literally been to hell and back following her HIV diagnosis, a diagnosis that also came with Fibroids and meningitis.
The last example is that of Vitalis and Esther Situma. The couple have seen it all after the husband was diagnosed with cancer if the Lymphatic system in 2001. He was also also diagnosed with another type of cancer - lymphoma making their lives unbearable.
The patients above are just a tip of the iceberg as the report indicated that many kenyans out there who are living with chronic diseases have lost hope as access to treatment is not available. Others who are living with incurable diseases and need the services of a hospice are unable to access one.
This left Kenyans on social media crying over the matter with many not only praying to God to stand with those suffering from terminal diseases but also wished God's divine healing on those suffering.
Samantha Mutheu: Honestly people are suffering out there.
Nelly wangari: God remember Mercy!
Myahudi Mtapeli: God heal this child.
Austin Okoth: Very sorry for all of them.
