Media personality Catherine Kasavuli has been fighting for her life for the past few months.
Ms Kasavuli is admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital.

The first time Kenyans learnt about her health condition was early this month when her colleagues appealed for blood donation.

Ms Kasavuli through her social media platforms penned a new message updating her fans on her battle with cancer from her hospital bed.

She described the past weeks as very painful but said she was still optimistic that everything would be okay in the end.

“It hasn’t been an easy week for me; I’ve had one of the most tiresome and extremely painful weeks.”

The veteran journalist added that her hopes in God are what keeps her strong.

“I am learning that you can’t beat this monster if you let it control how you feel and your hope to see a better tomorrow; your strength and hope in the Lord is what will keep you stronger. There’s no otherwise,” Ms Kasavuli said.

The veteran news anchor also took her time to appreciate everyone who has been praying for her quick recovery plus those who have been contributing towards her medical bill.

“To everyone that’s visited me, prayed with me, and contributed towards my medical bill, I want to say thank you so much, and may God meet with the desires of your heart. To all my online community that’s always sending messages of hope and love – I love you all.

“Anyone willing to support my bill and an upcoming procedure kindly get in touch on my DM ( Direct Message). However small it is, will go a long way. God bless you. “Love & Light. Catherine.”

Various government officials have since been visiting Ms Kasavuli.

CS for Youth Affairs, Sports, and Arts, Ababu Namwamba, visited her over the weekend.

The CS also paid glowing tribute to the legendary former news anchor at Kenyatta Hospital where she is recuperating.

A few weeks ago, Kasavuli also shared five key lessons she has learnt in the last couple of months.

One of them was on the importance of being at peace with their families.

Here are the life lessons as shared by Ms Kasavuli;
1. Your family is all you got at the end of the day, make peace with them, and try to be in good books with them. Even if you feel otherwise.
2. Always depend on your Higher Power, pray for as much as you can, at least while you have the strength.
3. If you have at least 2 friends or colleagues you can always count on, appreciate them. They’re very rare.
4. Don’t lose hope, keep on believing, and hope courageously.
5. Love your body, treasure it.
