There was a public fundraising four years ago to help her raise funds. In her funds drive, she was able to raise more than Sh6 million within a few hours.

She announced that she had gone into remission, but in 2018, she went to India for a cyberknife procedure that involves radiation of the cancer cells.

The procedure is done on the full body.

 “The body and disease has responded to this form of treatment and I had to finish what was left. Praying done and over!” she reported on her social media. She had two sons with her husband.
