Media personality Jahmby Koikai has appealed to Kenyans on her Instagram page with blood type O positive to donate to her at Nairobi Hospital where she is currently admitted.

Jahmby has been battling endometriosis for a long time because it wasn’t detected  early enough.

“Hi fam, I’m currently admitted at the Pioneer ward Nairobi Hospital and I kindly require  blood O positive. Kindly asking for blood  for donor for Mary Njambi Koikai,” read her post

After receiving a diagnosis of Stage 4 endometriosis and requiring a life-saving surgery, Jahmby flew to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2018 and was hospitalised at the Centre for Endometriosis Care for specialised treatment.

The singer suffered greatly as a result of the delayed diagnosis since she had had to constantly raise money for treatment both domestically and abroad.

Her organs began to move to the left as a result of endometriosis, which had progressed to her lungs, teeth, heart, appendix, and spine.

Endometriosis causes the uterine lining to thicken and deteriorate in sync with the menstrual cycle.

With nowhere to go, the tissue builds up and forms lesions, which hurt. Endometriosis can be controlled but there is no known cure.

The reggae diva claims that since battling endometriosis for 19 years, nothing has been the same in her life.

“I think this condition could have been prevented if the doctors I saw had given me the wrong diagnosis,” she said.

As he prepared to travel to the United States for a four-day vacation, Jahmby made a plea to Kenyan President William Ruto on Instagram on May 20.

“Allow me to start by addressing President William Ruto, who is currently on a state visit to the United States. This is a genuine and emotional plea for assistance to a select Kenyan leaders. Investing in health is one of the visit’s themes, Mr. President. As you commence your State visit tomorrow to the US, I’d like to kindly add a few visits that would help the millions of Kenyan women battling in silence.

“Please pay The Center for Endometriosis Care and the Northside Hospital Women’s unit and the directorship of Dr. Ken Sinervo, Dr. John Gouldman, the multi-disciplinary unit that helps to treat women from all over the world.
