Students from different universities in Nairobi have come together to assist Steve John Wasonga form the University of Nairobi who was diagnosed with Liver Cancer. He began to feel unwell earlier in the year and decided to seek medical attention at Kenyatta National Hospital where he was diagnosed with H-Pylori disease.
He developed pains in his abdomen and chest and decided to visit Neema Hospital in Kasarani where they told him that he had pneumonia and prescribed some medicine. His condition became worse and when he went to MP Shah Hospital he discovered that he had liver cancer. His doctors told him that his liver and spleen were swollen and that he needed treatment urgently. The treatment is to be carried out in India and would cost 3.5 million shillings.
He is currently at the Kenyatta National hospital receiving treatment although his condition is getting worse every day as his liver and spleen are competing for space, making breathing difficult for him.
His classmates decided to take up the task to help him raise funds because he is an orphan. They have been circulating messages via social media and posters to create awareness and raise money for Mr. Wasonga’s treatment.
