Media personality Jahmby Koikai is one of the bravest and strongest people the country has come to know.
This is attributed to her positive energy and great optimism even in the face of sickness and great trial in her life.
The former Nation FM’s presenter has by far become a beacon of hope to millions of Kenyans struggling with sicknesses even as she battles endometriosis.
Jahmby is currently in USA where she’s undergoing her multi-million treatment. Even after her ”Long major and excruciating surgery” which was coupled up by loss of sleep, she still exudes hope and strength in her day to day social media posts.
On Saturday, Jahmby penned a long post where she explained how tough her treatment journey has been but how she is grateful to God for always seeing her through even after she faces setbacks.
She is a tough woman who believes she will eventually stamp endometriosis because “the strongest women alive have all fought crazy battles .”
Read her post below.
America has been great even though we’ve been bound to hospital walls. I flew in here wih my family and God. I keep believing every single day, that i am a miracle child. A miracle child who the devil has tried time and again to snatch from God. So after that long major and excruciating surgery, there was no sleeping. Like right after recovery room, physically therapy started. Can you imagine walking immediately after surgery? Crazy right? I won’t even start on the pain. Then i have what they call a paediatric back, so fixing in an epidural was pain that i cannot again explain. I’ve never been numbed by pain. This pain numbed me. Anyway i have 3 amazing surgeons who have worked on me so far. Right after the major surgery, i was notified that more fluid was found hiding in my ribs..and i asked what that means. Doc was like we need to insert two other tubes to drain out all the fluid. Friends at this point i told God haki surely have mercy on me. This endometriosis thing cannot ravage me like this. Then God reminded me who He is. That He is King. I was wheeled into radiology yesterday and got two chest tubes added, i didn’t even realise it by the time they were done. God reminded me that this road won’t be easy. Infact it’s bound to be the hardest because relief is near. It is bound to be the hardest because healing is here. It is bound to be the hardest because the strongest women alive have fought crazy battles and won.
My mom and sis have stood by me and I’m here to show both of them and the world that we can beat endometriosis.
I’m here to stand in strength for every other little girl in high school fainting due to this thing.
I’m here to remind that career woman whose dreams are on hold that they too can have their life back.
I’m this little girl ready to engage with my government leaders and women leaders to fund more research on this condition.
