Omondi Ochuka has been battling cancer for 8 years and he is still braving on. He was diagnosed with cancer of the liver (hepatocellular carcinoma) in 2011 at age 19.

Almost half way through the journey, Omondi was joined by friends who did a fund drive dubbed #WeWillWin in 2016.This initiative enabled him to travel to India for treatment. This also marked a new chapter for his journey as he began to use his story for cancer and health advocacy.

Here is a brief bullet summary of his treatment:

November 2011 — Diagnosis

February to May 2012 — first surgery, followed by chemotherapy 

January 2013 — recurring tumour, radiotherapy and chemotherapy 

July 2013 to August 2014 — management 

February 2015 — Cancer metastasized to brain, he had radiotherapy

December 2016 to June 2017 in India — partial liver resection, immunotherapy, brachytherapy, chemotherapy

December 2018 —Present

New brain tumour, cancer has Metastasized(spread) to the bone marrow due to lack of funds for treatment. 

The treatment plan Omondi requires is 6 cycles of chemo, radiotherapy and medication. There are tests and scans recommended as appropriate measures for this plan. Unfortunately, due to financial restraints he isn't able to have them done. Meanwhile the cancer continues to spread. 

This is a collective and community appeal in support of his treatment. Truly, it has been a very long and difficult journey and he wouldn't have possibly done it alone. Along the way help has come from various people and places, help that affirm love and kindness and support during times of need.

Omondi remains indebted and thankful to all who have walked with him throughout his journey and is again coming to you for assistance and support in raising funds that will enable him to get back on track with his treatment plan and access medication.
