Milele FM radio presenter Mercy Mmbone is mourning the loss of her mother who passed away on January 29.

The radio presenter’s mother succumbed to cancer which she had been battling since 2017.

Mercy disclosed that her mother had gone into remission but the cancer would re-emerge in 2021 and eventually spread to the rest of her organs.

“Mummy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer (Stage IV) in 2017. She has walked the journey for the past 5 years. From 2018 to 2019, she was on chemotherapy and she got well. In 2021, she experienced cancer recurrence and began chemo afresh.


“Since then, mum has undergone changes in her body. She later developed complications that destroyed her vital stomach organs and eventually led to bleeding, before succumbing due to excessive bleeding,” Mmbone said.

Mmbone is now appealing for financial aid to help her family clear the pending as well as prepare for her burial which is slated for February 11.

Mmbone's comment section was flooded with condolence messages from her fans who sent her warmth.
