Kenyan TikToker Sandy Navida now thriving after beating cancer
Popular TikToker Sandy Navida continues to take life in stride after beating cancer.
In June 2021, she called for help on social media in raising funds to help her treat a cancerous tumour that was on her left leg.
According to the information she shared back then, she had already undergone surgery but still required another operation before beginning chemotherapy.
“…to enable her to fight cancer and prevent it from spreading to other parts of her body,” read the poster on her Instagram.
She had her second surgery where her left leg was amputated, underwent chemotherapy and eventually beat cancer.
“The things you do not know about me…I survived cancer, survived Covid-19, depression, surgeries and conversion (her body and face changed during treatment). Am still strong. Never lose hope. God knows why,” she said in another TikTok post.
Today, she is a jovial young lady taking on life with a beat. Going by her TikTok postings, she enjoys sensually dancing in all the latest dance moves and to the latest music, loves fashion and makes humorous videos with her friends.
She also participates in various TikTok dance challenges.
She is currently mobilizing funds to buy a prosthetic leg “so that she can live a normal life.”
At the same time, she takes being an amputee with a touch of light humour as evidenced when she captioned a video, “I almost fell (laugh emojis) balance problem,” while sensually dancing in a hair salon and barbershop.
In another video, she made a humorous commentary about a man leaving a woman because she had lost hair due to chemotherapy treatment, only for him to return once the lady was healed and her beautiful hair had grown back.
She also celebrated by amassing over 10,000 followers on TikTok, saying, “Thank you, love you all…my fans let’s keep pushing to better levels.”
The National Cancer Institute of Kenya places cancer as the third leading cause of death after infectious and cardiovascular diseases.
About 47,887 cancer patients are diagnosed annually with approximately 21% of them going on to beat it with rigorous treatment.
