Hi, my name is Joseph Ngigi a programmer, musician and band leader at my local church CITAM Ngong, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in the year 2017.
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease of the large intestine, also known as the colon, in which the lining of the colon becomes inflamed and develops tiny open sores, or ulcers, that produce pus and mucous. The combination of inflammation and ulceration can cause abdominal discomfort and frequent emptying of the colon.
Ulcerative colitis is the result of an abnormal response by your body's immune system. Normally, the cells and proteins that make up the immune system protect you from infection. In people with IBD, however, the immune system mistakes food, bacteria, and other materials in the intestine for foreign or invading substances. When this happens, the body sends white blood cells into the lining of the intestines, where they produce chronic inflammation and ulcerations.
At the time I was severely affected. There is very little information in Kenya regarding the same and there are very few doctors that help manage it. The cost of maintenance medication locally is very expensive.
I was recently referred for specialized treatment in India and I am raising funds to cater for the same and support me after treatment. The cost is estimated at 15000USD
So far we have managed to raise Ksh. 736,340. Trusting God the figure will rise before the end of the month.
