She is setting up an organization called, She Chooses to Live Initiative. One of its burden is to reduce the number of women suffering and dying from cervical and breast cancer in Kenya by informing women to get screened and examined for these ailments. The goal of this initiative is to drastically reduce the suffering and death of women from Cervical and Breast Cancer in Kenya through creating awareness and screening.
Every year more than 3,000 women die of cervical cancer in Kenya. This disease is almost 100% preventable meaning no woman need ever die from this disease. It has been shown that it takes close to ten years for HPV infection to become full blown cancer. If women were to be screened annually in Kenya, there would probably be very few deaths from cervical cancer in the country.
She aims to creating awareness to at least 3,000 women in the next one year on cervical and breast cancer. stressing the importance of annual screening, screen at least 600 women throughout Kenya in the next one year, carry out at least 12 successful medical camps where women will be informed and screened for both cervical and breast cancer throughout Kenya.
