K24 news anchor Anjlee Gadhvi’s daughter broke down after learning that her mother was meant to travel abroad for specialized cancer treatment.
In a video she shared on Twitter, Anjlee, who is a cancer survivor, said that she found it hard to explain to her five year-old daughter why she has to leave the country for treatment.
According to the news anchor, she will have to be out of the country for the next two weeks as she undergoes the specialized medical care.
“I don’t know whether I should be sharing this clip or not. But since cancer is the discussion I think it’s important to share how I find it hard to explain to my 5 year old why I have to leave her for 2 weeks to seek specialised treatment out of the country. #cancer,” she wrote.
This comes a few days after she celebrated her birthday in an exquisite affair that was attended by close friends, colleagues at Mediamax and family members.
Ms Anjlee a Liver Cancer survivor who has battled the disease for over six years in a post said that she had been told by doctors that she only had a few years left several times, but she was happy to have stepped into another year.
“A year older! We are celebrating! God is kind! Time and again I have been reminded by doctors that I may not make it.. I have a certain duration. I am well aware I face the odds ...I look at the silent pessimism on the faces of those who treat me.. I have fallen so many times ppl, but then again, I choose to stand up. It's not over. Here I am.. 6 years down, still alive, standing strong, resilient and all I can say is THANKYOU to a powerful force that shields me, protects me, and continues to help me rise above the odds. It is in this time when you grow to understand who stands with you, I cannot thank my friends and my family who continuously support and cherish me... they remind me, that it's not my time yet, I have to live!! I have to fulfil my purpose! And that I must be a testimony. It is well! Thank you for the love!” she wrote on Instagram.
