Before her death, she had been struggling to raised funds for her 23 year old son to get specialised treatment abroad.Speaking during a Business Daily interview, Achieng disclosed that raising the 4 million shillings required to airlift her son to the UK had been an uphill battle.

“My son is 23. We discovered that he had a heart condition five years ago and so we’ve been treating that along with the sickle cell anaemia.

He’s a clever boy, he got scholarships. He was supposed to have started last year in April, but just before that he was in ICU for over a month. But now doctors want to strengthen his heart. They can. ..Yes, only it’s in the UK. And we have to airlift him, which costs like Sh12 million and crazy things like that. The alternative is to have a doctor, a nurse, myself and him on business class for Sh4 million. So we are trying to raise Sh4 million." She said.

On learning of her son’s situation after her death, Kenyan celebrities are rallying to help the son.

An one of them is Larry Madowo who wrote ”Please support Achieng' Abura's son Prince get the treatment he needs. M-Pesa PayBill: 891300, Account: ABURA”
