I stand with Janet Kanini Ikua #PinkBigger

October 13, 2015 9:05 am

, Janet Kanini Ikua is the mother to a five-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter and the wife to George Ikua and resides in Nairobi, Kenya. She is a TV host to NTV’s N-Soko Property Show and a former NTV News Anchor in Nairobi.


Some of you may know her as Janet Ikua or Kanini or simply as Janee (say Zhanéé). Whichever name you use, Kanini is a face that many are familiar with; one we have come to love and her demeanor is characterized with big smiles and a vibrant personality.

Kanini’s challenging health journey began in April of this year, a journey she has shared with many, a story that only she can tell. It has been a treacherous one; having began with a DVT diagnosis earlier in the year and ending up with one of metastatic adenocarcinoma of the lung that has spread to the abdomen and lymph nodes in the neck area. Sadly and simply put, this is stage 4-lung cancer that has spread from the primary site to other areas.

The silver lining is that her medical team has come up with a comprehensive treatment plan that includes scheduled cycles of chemotherapy. Kanini is in New Delhi, India, currently undergoing the initial cycle of chemotherapy treatment.

She remains her usual upbeat and positive self.

Dear family and friends and well-wishers, this is where we really need your help. Kanini is only in her 30s, a wife and young mother of two. We know and trust that she will beat this but she needs your financial support to help cover the medical expenses so that she, in turn, can focus her energy on getting well. We appreciate all donations and no amount is too little. Your donation will help cover Janee’s medical bills and expenses associated with getting the medical treatments that she needs.
