None of the bone marrows matches with mine - Kenyan journalist battling cancer

- Journalist Dennis Omondi is admitted to Apolo hospital in India

- Omondi is suffering from leukemia whose treatment is expensive

- At least four bone marrow tests have proved incompatible

Kenyan journalist Dennis Musundi Omondi who was diagnosed with acute Leukaemia and admitted to an Indian hospital has failed to get compatible bone marrows.

Doctors had conducted bone marrow tests on Omondi's four brothers but unfortunately, none of them matched his type.

"My four brothers have done bone marrow test as donors but unfortunately, none of them matches with me. With this it means I will have to wait for long as the hospital figures out where on earth to get someone who has similar cells/bone marrow like mine. This means more cost," he tweeted on Monday, April 16.

The West TV senior news reporter left the country on Wednesday, February 7, after months of being admitted to Kenya National Hospital as doctors monitored his situation.

According to his doctor at the Apollo Hospitals, Chirag Shah, the procedure, including three weeks stay at the hospital would amount to an approximated KSh 1,663,306.45 (USD16500).

Unable to raise the amount, Omondi did not receive any treatment and his hospital bill accumulated to KSh 6.5 million.

Kenyans went to his rescue and managed to raise KSh 3.5 million.
