Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy no amount of words can ever take the pain and grief and Jahmby Koikai knows this too well having lost her grandmother.
The deceased was diagnosed with stage three pancreatic cancer and the family was trying to raise Sh 6 million to cater for medical expenses before she sadly passed on after a brave battle.
She took to her instagram to talk about grief and how she is doing her best to get better for her mum and sister.
“Let’s talk about grief. Mourning. I lost my grandma to pancreatic cancer in 2016. I had just been discharged from surgery and I remember going home in stitches and found out that the cancer had spread to her brain. Our mummy was senile when she left this earth. The most devastating day of my life. In the midst of everything we have gone through as a family, we are all grieving. Most of my friends had met mummy. She raised all of us and mum was our big sister.”
She goes on to say;
“The late Achieng Abura once shared about the tragedy that hit their family and how it changed and divided them. My grandma was a martriach. She was our glue and when she left we were all left to wonder how and who will be the glue. I think my mum is the strongest woman on earth. Her mother had pancreatic cancer stage 4 while i was in hospital undergoing surgeries for a condition we knew nothing about. She’s had to take care of us and take care of herself. I write in tears and i tell God whatever it is, i will fight for my mum and my sister. I will finish strong because i need them to be happy and smile. I want to give my mom and my sis the best.”
She concludes by adding that she is fighting hard to make her grandmother proud taking a chance to advice people on how to deal with grief.
“I will finish strong because i know my grandma is proud of how I’ve fought a disease that she saw ravage me even as she was dying. We miss mummy dearly. Every single day. To all the people who’ve had to deal with grief, understand this. It just doesn’t go away and no amount of words can ever console or comfort grief but time.
I’m finishing strong. I’m fighting every day. Thank you for standing with this girl Jahmby Koikai. Thank you for your support.”
