AAR hosted the brave Rose Nasimiyu at AAR’s George Williamson Clinic on Friday 29th July, 2011. Nine- Year Old Rose Nasimiyu
who has made headlines in the past two weeks due to her courage in battling with Hodgkin's Lymphoma which is the cancer of the lymph tissue has touched many lives including that of AAR’s CEO Jagi Gakunju.
As a result, the CEO offered on behalf of AAR to bear the costs of three of Rose' chemotherapy sessions at Gertrude’s Children’s hospital. “We felt our gesture would become a catalyst for others to offer assistance,” said Mr. Gakunju. “We had touched Rose and unknowingly others in a way we did not envisage,” he said. The response from Rose’s fans and general public in praise of AAR’s gesture was immediate and overwhelming.
Rose who wants to be a pediatric oncologist and a model when she grows up believes that she will live to be a voice to those suffering from cancer as she is.
