Diabetes in children

The Daily Nation newspaper has today(30th March) published an article I wrote on childhood diabetes.

The lady in the story known as Carol was my student at the University. She is the first person I met with type 1 diabetes, a childhood disease that is rarely diagnosed on time and kills probably thousands in Kenya. Her story is one of hope and encouragement for parents with children suffering the symptoms of type 1 diabetes.

    Glad to have read this inspiring story of a lady very well known to me; a church mate, a friend and a classmate. Indeed it’s a story of hope and an encouragement to rise up above one’s circumstances.
