Children`s Corner:Focus on the late Baby girl Lexy

Our focus today on Children’s corner is on the late 4 years Baby girl Lexy (Alexandra Ajowi)Who passed on at the Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday, July 17, 2012.  Baby Lexy is now the fourth cancer victor that the Africa Cancer Foundation has lost since its launch in July 12, 2011.

Late Alexandra
Baby Lexy, the daughter of Dr. Angela Awino McLigeyo and Dr. Denis Otieno, was diagnosed with Leukaemia in November 2010 while admitted at the Nairobi Hospital. After undergoing numerous surgeries including a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) in India, Lexy was finally declared cancer-free in October 2011. Since then, Lexy has been in and out of hospital fighting various complications arising from her compromised immunity from all the treatments and surgeries she had to undergo. Her most recent admission at the Nairobi Hospital saw her hospitalised in the Intensive Care Unit for 2 weeks suffering from liver, kidney and blood complications, which she finally succumbed to on July 17, 2012. 

The family and friends of Baby Lexy are calling upon the public to help offset the medical bill that is approximately Ksh. 4.5 Million. The fundraiser was held on Friday 20, July, 2012 at the All Saint’s Cathedral from 5:00pm. Contributions can also be sent to:
