Join us (Seriana Enterprises) for a fitness walk on 7th December at Nkubu-Meru to donate a smile to a cancer patient during this Christmas season by offering chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions, medicine and medical insurance(NHIF CARD).
In Kenya, cancer is now the 3rd leading cause of deaths and second
among non- communicable diseases accounting for 7% of overall mortality
rate. The annual incidences are estimated to be 37,000 new cases with
annual mortality rate of 28,000.
Facilities in Kenya offering cancer treatment are very few the main being Kenyatta National Hospital(KNH) in the public sector, patients travel long distances to get treatment. This makes cancer treatment very costly and implies that over 90% of Kenyans cannot afford cancer services even in the public hospitals
.Although cancer is curable, unfortunately 70-80% of patients diagnosed
with cancer in Kenya are at advanced stages with high incidence of
misdiagnosis and inadequate screening hindering early detection.
