Kenyan salon owner warms hearts after giving cancer patient a makeover: ‘Feel Like Queen’

  • Liz was diagnosed with cancer shortly after the burial of her grandmother, who was her only surviving relative
  • Usikimye founder Njeri wa Migwi took care of her while she studied at KCA University, where she received a scholarship for getting an A in KCSE.
  • Everything was fine until she was recently put back on chemotherapy when her cancer returned and she lost her hair.

Some of the most difficult side effects of cancer treatments may not cause physical pain. They may not cause fatigue or digestive issues. And they may only be temporary.

But for some cancer patients, hair loss can be one of the most distressing side effects of cancer treatment. Hair loss makes one feel vulnerable, embarrassed and exposed as a cancer patient.

For this reason, Usikimye founder and human rights activist, Njeri wa Migwi, took the initiative to ensure that a young girl diagnosed with cancer regains her confidence.

Liz has suffered a lot of stigma due to hair loss. The young girl has been in Migwi’s care since she finished fourth grade after losing her grandmother, who was her only living survivor.

After getting an A in her KCSE exams, she was offered a scholarship by the Kenya University of Chartered Accountants (KCA), where she studied while undergoing treatment.

“Everything was fine until the cancer came back with a vengeance last month. She had to start chemo again, and unfortunately she lost all her hair last week,” Migwi wrote.
