Chris Kirubi’s encouraging message to Kenyans: ‘I beat cancer, so can you’
Sept. 18, 2019
Chris Kirubi is one of the most hardworking men in the country. The 78-year-old tycoon has diverse interests in media, real-estate and also investment companies.
Saying the multi-billionaire has done well for himself is an understatement but even men like him who have ascended the rarified heights of extreme wealth still go through tough times.
Chris related yesterday in a viral video that he had suffered from and beat cancer. The tycoon also asked Kenyans to go for cancer screening early enough to increase their chances of beating the disease. He said;
I would like to appeal to our people to go check their status, you need to go to check your status… Cancer is not devastating if it’s discovered early. We need to make sure that if you have a cancer attack, it is discovered in the first or second stage. By that time it is possible to cure it.
He also explained that while it may be devasting to receive a cancer diagnosis, he said that waiting to get tested gives doctors a hard time in coming up with an effective treatment plan. He divulged;
Do not allow cancer to get to the third, fourth stage because it becomes very difficult for doctors to cure us. I would like all our members to survive and that’s why I’m appealing, as one of the victims, to you to make sure that you do not have to undergo a major cancer attack.
Finishing off his message, Chris encouraged viewers that he was living proof that the cancer monster can be indeed be defeated. He said;
I would like you to think of me, to see me as a reminder that cancer can be cured and I want you to believe in it by taking care of it. I believe the doctors are available in the rural areas and you just have to make an effort to check your blood. Ask the doctor to profile your blood for cancer cells. If you do that, you will live for a long time.

Considering that our country lost several heavyweights like Bob Collymore and Ken Okoth to cancer this past year, Kirubi’s message is both timely and needed.
