She also called on her fans to tag and catch the attention of the 62-year-old media personality in order for her to be able to raise worldwide awareness so that other women can get help too.

Hey fam. I'm Njambi Koikai: I'm an Endo Conqueror. Fighter. Warrior. I have shared my story many times before and I'm always living to tell a new one. I battled thoracic endometriosis for over 15 years, which started with painful periods getting worse and worse, followed by lung collapses. Years of misdiagnosis led to me to search further for the cause of my pain. That is how I discovered the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta where I received my life saving surgery. The cost of treatment was prohibitive meaning I had to fundraise since I had no employment nor insurance. I was categorised as one of the worst cases of endometriosis ever seen. Two weeks ago, I sadly had another lung collapse, making it 19 surgeries over the last 19 years. I have survived to date thanks to God and your support has been crucial. Please join me in my efforts in trying to raise awareness world-wide so that other women may be able to get help too. Please help me tag @iamsteveharveytv let's see if we can make it more than 20k comments😊 #jahmbyarmy #jahmbybeatingendo #thoracicendometriosis #endometriosis #endofighter #Godschild #positivepowerofsocialmedia

Jahmby has been in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA receiving treatment at the Center for Endometriosis Care over the past one year. According to her post on Instagram, she said that two weeks ago she suffered another lung collapse which led her to have her 19th surgery in the last 19 years.

The dreadlocked celebrity has been open about her journey battling Endometriosis on social media and even calling on well-wishers to fundraise for her treatment in the USA since she was unemployed and lacked medical insurance. She has also touched on the genesis of the disease which started as extremely painful cramps in her teens and often being dismissed by doctors that it was normal and that she would get better after she had her first child. Years of misdiagnosis led her to find a solution for her pain and she was finally diagnosed with an extreme case of thoracic endometriosis.

Although Jahmby has been vocal on social media and on various Kenyan media platforms it has not been enough since many of these cases are misdiagnosed or treated as normal cases of painful period cramps while many women suffer from the disease.

Despite battling the disease for many years, the cheerful Jahmby always finds time to post on her progress as well as encourage other women who suffer from Endometriosis that they can get treatment for the ailment.
