K24 news anchor Anjlee Gadhvi has died after a long battle with cancer. She was undergoing treatment at the Agha Khan University Hospital.
In 2018 Gadhvi opened up on her battle with cancer and radiotherapy sessions in hospital saying they were not easy.
Through an Instagram post, Gadhvi divulged that she was often strapped in a single position with her arms stretched above her head and this caused her body sores.
The anchor further added that this led to an inflamed throat and swallowing food was a struggle but a few months later there was remarkable improvement in her health and she was going about her life as usual.
Gadhvi was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2013 but went public about it in 2015 after various treatment options had drained funds raised by family and friends
In August last year, Ghadvi was admitted to a hospital in India.
The journalist shared an update on the kind of treatment she underwent in India on her Twitter account.
“I had an intense CyberKnife treatment early February this year. The area treated was large, hence the recovery period took time. The body and disease has responded to this form of treatment and I had to finish what was left. Praying done and over!,” she shared.
The CyberKnife System is a radiation therapy device that is used to deliver radiosurgery for the treatment of benign tumors, malignant tumours, and other medical conditions.
She eventually appealed for public help and received a donation of over Sh6 million from Kenyans in hours.
