I lost my husband to cancer after only 1 year of marriage - K24 news anchor

The leading news anchor has shared her painful story of losing her husband when their child was only 3 months old.

The two were just new in their marriage when her husband succumbed to the scourge in 2005 leaving her with a 3-month-old baby.

"I mourned for eight years between 2005 and 2013. It was a shock, like a never-ending nightmare. I had been married for just one year. ” Isabella disclosed to The Nairobian before adding that a talk with her pastor helped her move on. He told her that “It’s not fair to you or him. He would wish for your happiness, not misery.”

And that is when she removed her wedding band and had a meeting with herself.

“I had a meeting with myself. I had to stop behaving as if the world owed me for the loss and pain I suffered. I began to train myself to see the world as a stage of opportunities. I stopped feeling that people around me should give me their shoulder. Instead, I started sharing my experience, empowering others in similar situations. I became more useful to the universe. I called myself ‘Blessed Bella’ as a mantra to remind me I can be happy again,” Isabella added.
