Doris Mayoli: Fighting Cancer through Music (Twakutukuza Worship Concert)

1

What plans do you have for today? If you’re still looking for a ‘plot’ then you can consider attending the Twakutuza worship concert happening today at Nairobi Chapel, Ngong rd.

Twakutuzuka is the brainchild of Doris Mayoli a mother of two boys who was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2005. Nine years later, Doris is cancer free, having been lucky enough not to be one of 27,000 people who lose their lives to cancer each year.

With a second chance at life, Doris today helps cancer patients in the fight for their lives through music. She organizes the Twakutukuza worship concerts, whose proceeds go towards helping cancer patients meet medical bills and have a second chance at life, just like she did. This she does courtesy of Twakutukuza Trust.

In her weekly news feature segment ‘Women and Power’ on NTV, host Victoria Rubadiri had a chat with Doris on her cancer journey.

Have a look at it here and if you’ll make it to the concert, see you then. Carry your kids along.
