Big Kev’s case is a story of unwavering determination to live; he is the most tenacious person you can ever come across.
5 more tumors removed from Big Kev’s head
Event organizer, Kevin Ombajo popularly known as Big Kev has been battling recurring tumor for close to a decade. 5 more tumors were recently removed from his head.
His life in the last seven years has been characterized by trips to hospitals across the world for lifesaving surgeries.
Big Kev was diagnosed with brain tumor in 2006 and had his first surgery in India. From then onwards the chronic disease has been recurring making him travel to hospitals as far as Australia for surgeries to remove recurring tumors in his head.
The event organizer went under the knife again this October 2016; the recurring tumor reappeared and this time round the swellings were big.
“W'sup guys, Thank you so much for the love that you've shown during this period. I think its only fair that I let you know what you're praying for.
Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with recurrent meningioma and two blood clots, one in the lung and the other in the ankle. Situation was critical.. We asked for opinion everywhere, here at home, the leading doctors and as far a field as Germany, Switzerland, USA, UK, Israel and once again India.
I was told collective opinion wise it had come to far and doctors here had asked to prepare for special care because I had between 20-30 days to live, one of the tumors had become too big, they were FIVE of them. Only two hospitals asked for me to be taken.. A hospital in India and another in Israel, so we had to make a choice.. Stay here and accept my fate, go to Israel with no medical history or give it one more shot with the Doctors in India. Because of the blood clots in the lung and size of the tumors it was even a challenge to travel.” Big Kev announced on Facebook.
Big Kev further says doctors removed five tumors during the latest surgery, bringing to total 13 tumors that have been removed from his head since he was diagnosed with the disease.
“We had a maximum of TEN days to organize for this whole trip my family and a few close friends were able to pull it off in few days. I went through surgery on the 10th Oct, 2016. They removed the FIVE tumors bringing to a total the number of tumors removed from my head in the last seven years to THIRTEEN. Through into the pulmonary embolisms for good measure. We made it back home, I'm in Kenya recovering and I'm thinking surely Isn't Thirteen tumors and two PE's in seven years too much for one to handle however strong?!
I'm waiting for scans to confirm the operation was successful, and the scans will be repeated every few months to ensure we are out of danger.This entire experience has changed me forever.”
Our prayers are with Big Kev, may the good Lord give you strength to overcome everything.
