Veteran news anchor Catherine Kasavuli has opened up about six important lessons she has learnt over the past few months she has been battling cancer.
Kasavuli, who continues to receive treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital after being diagnosed with cervical cancer, revealed she has learnt the importance of family and depending on a higher power.
The KBC anchor further noted that she had learnt the importance of having a few friends she can count on and the willpower to fight regardless of the situation at hand.
"Lessons I've learnt last couple of months;
"Your family is all you got at the end of the day, make peace with them, try to be in good books with them. Even if you feel otherwise.
"Always depend on your Higher Power, pray for as much as you can, at least while you have the strength.
"If you have at least 2 friends or colleagues you can always count on, appreciate them. They're very rare.
"Don't lose hope, keep on believing, hope courageously.
"Love your body, treasure it.
"Finally, always do good, it will always come back to you, eventually.
"Thank you good people. I love you all," Kasavuli wrote.
It's not been easy
In an earlier post, while thanking those who responded to an appeal to donate blood for her, Kasavuli admitted that the past month had not been easy for her.
"Last one month has really been crazy for me, I want to take this moment and appreciate my family, colleagues in the media industry, the Catherine Kasavuli Foundation team, my doctors, friends, strangers, online community; I wish I could respond to all your messages, I see them and I'm really humbled. May God remember you," she wrote.
"To special people that have come forth to donate blood may God bless you, may he enrich your beautiful souls, may He meet with the desires of your heart. To special souls that are contributing towards my medical bill, I love you so much and God bless you," she added.
The veteran journalist further expressed optimism that she would overcome the fight against cancer.
"It's not an easy journey but I believe in God's faithfulness and breakthrough. To anyone fighting the same struggle - I love you, we shall overcome, life is a beautiful thing and we shall live to tell our stories."
