Kenyans raised over 20,000USD (2million KShs) in hour to help a young girl raise funds for a cancer treatment.
13 year old Bianca fighting breast cancer was hosted on a local television show that brought her to the attention of well wishers that gave generously.
Here is Bianca Wambui’s paybill number; Bianca is a 13-year-old diagnosed with breast cancer. She has had a mastectomy done but no radiotherapy/ chemotherapy due to lack of finances

The teenage had only 120USD (12000KShs) in her mobile money kitty when she started the show but by the end of broadcast she has over 2 million Kenyans shillings to access medication. The host of the show quoted the figure at the end of the show.

Bianca Wambui, fighting breast cancer at 13 and being financially disadvantaged can be quite something. Your fighter spirit is however evident. @Citizentvkenya @KoinangeJeff #JKL #JKLive pic.twitter.com/hCDBcAaTIK

A country with people obsessed with primitive accumulation of wealth and yet Bianca Wambui cannot get treated for cancer due to lack of funds?

Dear @nhifkenya, Let us help Bianca Wambui get treated. I am offering my @StateHouseKenya maintained NHIF cover. Allow me to add Bianca as my dependant tomorrow morning and we can have this young girl treated. Fair enough, NHIF #UHC #JKLive
