Recently, Koikai sent out the following message:

 

This corridor has been my walk way for a few weeks. Right after my surgery, my cardiothoracic surgeon walks

in and says there’s more water in the lungs. Fair enough. That meant another mini-surgery. I aced it. I went through it and came out with more tubes right under my breast going through to my ribs connected to the two boxes you see on the walker.

The box on the side was connected to my stomach. All draining water and blood. I also had a catheter in. Then a week later, doc said they found water in another part of my rib cage. So they gave me options. Either we insert the tube through your armpit or through your back or through your breast. I couldn’t bear a tube in my back since i lie on my back. I opted to have the tube through my right breast. I aced it. It started draining.

I just want to encourage little girls in high school, young adult women, career women who’ve had to endure this pain, miss school and always shamed. I’m here for you. I will be there for you as long as God gives me life. They will hear our pain. They will know that Endo is real and we need a cure.


All the tubes were removed. I’m recovering well just dealing with the motions of healing.
We have a fundraiser and thanksgiving event on the 5th of May at Believers Celebration Centre in Marietta, Atlanta. I will be there to share my story.

‘Please help me return home,’ Kenyan legend runner living in the US pleads

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Kenyan distance running legend Henry Rono a broken man. He has been living in the United States of America for the last 32 years, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Rono who is now 66, on Tuesday reached out to Nation Sport and sent a passionate appeal:

“I wants a ticket back home, please.”

“Yes, I would like the government to help me get back home by getting me a ticket… I can’t afford living in the USA. I’m getting old… Also, being away from home for over 32 years is too long,” added the legend.

The legend is currently a security guard at the Albuquerque airport.

“Yes, I did retire, but these other jobs are stressful and I’m too old,” he said. “Like now, I’m sick from working hard. Many of my fellow Kenyans are dying from stressful hard working jobs,” said Rono, who was given a lifetime achievement award by the International Association of Athletics Federations in 2008.

“I have been given another award in Belgrade but I’m able to attend because of stressful work. Like now, I’m in the bed and I’m unwell.”

But Rono’s daughter Maureen confirmed she had spoken to the legend, and that he has been unwell since last week. “He has been coughing for the last week, and I’ve been in touch with him. If he asked you to send out an appeal for help, you can go ahead and publish,” she said.

Athletics Kenya President Jack Tuwei, meanwhile, said his association would be ready to help the legend.

“He did a lot for this country and we can’t fail to get help for him,” said Tuwei. “We need information such as costs of tickets, who he could be travelling with and other details, and then see how we can support.”

The Washington State University star alumnus had taken up coaching after his running career, this after alcoholism dented the highlight years of his spell that saw him shatter world records in the 3,000 metres (seven minutes, 32.1 seconds), 5,000 metres (13:08.4), 3,000 metres steeplechase (8:05.04) and 10,000 metres (27:22.47), all within 81 days across USA (California and Seattle) and Europe (Vienna and Oslo).

An American who survived the 9/11 terror attack is among those who were killed in Tuesday’s terror attack at Nairobi’s 14 Riverside Drive.

Jason Spindler’s mother Sarah Sandler told NBC News that her son “was trying to make positive change in the third world in emerging markets.”

Jason’s brother, Jonathan, also confirmed the family’s tragic loss via Facebook.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that my brother, Jason Spindler passed away this morning during a terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya. Jason was a survivor of 9-11 and a fighter. I am sure he gave them hell!” Jonathan’s post read.

The US State department confirmed that an American citizen was killed in the Tuesday attack.

Spindler, who was the CEO and Global Managing Director of I-DEV International, was, according to colleagues, having lunch at the Dusit Hotel when the attack happened.

I-DEV is based at Metta, a space for entrepreneurs that is located at the 14 Riverside office complex in the Belgravia building’s sixth floor.
