I have been living with type 1 diabetes for more than 30 years, but now I am struggling with complications. Type 1 diabetes is not ''the rich man's disease'' as so many call it. Over the years I had to borrow money to buy my insulin, and I missed my clinics because I couldn't afford the consultation fees. I came to see that diabetes affects both the rich and the poor.

I am now facing some major diabetes complications. I have low vision disability and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), which have brought more complications due to kidney failure. I also have what they call brittle bone disease. I have dislocated both my hip joints and am on a wheelchair. Taking care of all these conditions here in Kenya with no personal income is frustrating, but I have not lost hope.

I am trying to raise enough funds to cover the costs of hip replacement surgery and treatment. I am not as strong as before, but I made a promise to make the lives of people with diabetes more comfortable. If I don't get the help I need, at least I know my advocacy will help someone in Kenya with diabetes to get better medical care, affordable diabetic supplies and 100% government support.
