It was an emotional moment for Hon Mike Sonko and many of Baby Scandy Chelegat’s well wishers at JKIA as the well- healing happy baby Chelagat arrived back from India.
Baby Scandy Chelangat’s eye surgery in India was sponsored by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko among other well wishers like Blogger Steve Kewa and KRN Facebook group members.
The surgery to remove a cancerous growth on her left eye was successful, Senator Sonko revealed via his Facebook page on Wednesday.
Sonko said doctors in Kenya had lost hope in Chelangat’s treatment terming it “near impossible”.
“The doctors had indicated that the tumour was already attached to her brain making the surgery very complicated,” he said.
Sonko flew Chelangat, who hails from Bureti in Kericho, to Basavatarakam indo-American cancer hospital & research institute for the operation in May.
He paid the hospital bill and catered to the 27-day stay, the girl’s relative Tony Langat said upon her return on Tuesday evening.
