Speaking to Briefly.co.za’s Lynn Ngugi, the selfless mum said her choice was an easy one.

She made the ultimate sacrifice any mother would not hesitate to make.

“I have gone through a lot since 2017. I was diagnosed with cancer. I was told I had sickle tumour. I was told it was either my daughter die and I lived or the vice versa,” she said.

Anne who has braved through the test of time was told to get rid of her pregnancy so she could be treated for cancer.

“I told them I cannot get rid of my baby because there is a reason why God gave her to me,” Anne declared.

The mum who believes her little girl is an answered prayer chose to go through a four-hour surgery that posed a threat to her life.

“If we were to go then we would die together. I wanted my baby to live. I am a Christian,” she added.

Now, as she lies in a bed hoping for a cure, the mother of two maintains she does not regret her decision and she would do it again in a heartbeat.

When she looks at her little girl, Zawadi, all Ann can do is have faith and strength to fight another day.

The single mum is now pleading with Kenyans to hold her in prayer and help her raise cash for treatment in India.

Anne still hopes that one day she will get to be a mother to her two girls and tell a testimony of how she beat cancer.
