amilies of cancer patients have been driven to poverty due to the high cost of treatment, TNA coordinator Gladys Chania has said.

Raising funds for a cancer-stricken couple yesterday in Githunguri subcounty, she urged the county and national governments to support such families.

“When a family has a relative suffering from cancer, they have to carry out fundraisers,” Chania said.

“By the time the patient is taken to hospital, the cancer has gone to the next stage, hence chances of survival are minimal.”
