Earlier this month, Janet Kanini Ikua, N-Soko property show host made a declaration on Facebook on her Cancer Diagnosis. Despite the shocking revelation, Janet’s post exuded strength and faith to emerge victorious after the treatment.
In April 2015, she was diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) that resulted in blood clots in her legs. The DVT led to further complications and Janet had to be urgently hospitalized a second time with blood clots in her heart and pulmonary artery. Even after this the DVT kept recurring and Janet decided to seek further intervention in India. In September, Janet, accompanied by her husband George Ikua, traveled to New Delhi, where she was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, which had spread from her lungs to her abdomen and lymph nodes.
Janet’s friends and colleagues from Nation Media Group, and other media groups, Artists and Family are planning the family concert to be held on 8th of November 2015, noon to 6 pm, at the Carnivore Grounds in Nairobi. The concert is aimed at raising funds towards her cancer treatment. We have therefore partnered with NMG in appealing to all Kenyans to support this cause, by attending the concert.
The proceeds from this concert will go towards Janet’s treatment in India. The surplus will go towards Kenya National Hospital Children Cancer Ward. Let’s help a cancer hero win this battle with cancer.
Tickets for the concert are available at Ticket Sasa and are going for 1000 Ksh for adults and 500 Ksh for children below 12 years. We would like you to appeal to all Kenyans to join hands and support this noble cause. The concert will be hosted by Churchill, and will feature performances by Kenyan artistes including: Sauti Sol, Elani, Octopizzo, Willy Paul, Nameless, Wahu ,Kaligraph, King Kaka and others.
