    Thank you for this story, Chichi is an inspiration in the world of TB, we need more TB advocates to speak about it!

    Congratulations Chichi. Your’s is an inspiring story, which also serves to remind us of the adverse effcets of delayed diagnosis and treatement. There is no single reason why any Kenyan should suffer as such. We are a rich country (with ability to sustain War in Somalia for months on end). What we haven’t seen in our governemnt is a determination to sustain a healthy population. Chichi’s story is the lesson we will never benefit from until such a time when Kenya will prioritize health and demonstrate so through adeqaute allocation of national resources to health.

    Keep the faith Chichi.

    When a man who has survived so much says “Do not feel sorry for me… I give hope to people with TB”, my first response is to feel proud of the human spirit. My second response is to ask why – why did this brave man have to suffer so much from a disease that should have been easily cured? Governments around the world, not just in Kenya, need to prioritise TB control. It doesn’t have the profile of other diseases, but that makes it no less deadly.

    Chichi you are indeed a beacon of hope to TB patients and those co-infected with HIV who are at an increased chances of contacting the MDR and XDR TB, you story will inspire the world and will arouse more concern for human dignity and call for critical cause to invest more in treatng the people regardless complecity of the disease stage. Your story is a clear manifestation that MDR TB is currable and treatable what we need in place is the enlargement of the TB programs to cover management of post treatment adverse side effects that comes as a result of the powerful and highly toxic MDR and XDR TB drugs. Otherwise i am happy for you and your family and wish you all the very best as you join us in advocating for development of new tool that will  STOP TB IN OUR LIFE TIME.

    Don’t let the candle flame burn out Chichi. You are the model icon in for fighting all that life throws at us head on. Keep on keeping on and there is no reason why with people like you we cannot win the fight against TB. God bless you and give the strength to push on the advocacy agenda forward.

    Indeed this is such an inspiring story that in spite of the what he has gone through, he is a source of inspiration to others in similar circumstances as well as the greater community. This also makes us know what our fellow brothers and sisters in this position go through , and more about TB. Keep up the Spirit Chichi.
