Nairobi - Christian Longomba, one of the two brothers that made up the
Longombas is in dire need of your financial aid.
According to a GoFundMe
profile that was uploaded to help with raising the funds, the artist had a
seizure in May. After testing doctors revealed that he had a life threatening
tumour on his brain that required urgent surgery. His family are asking fans and
friends to help them reach their target of USD 20,000 (KES 2 million) for the surgery.
The profile which was uploaded less than a week ago has
managed to raise a little over USD 2000 (KES 200,000) so far.
The post read “On May 18th 2015,
Christian Longomba suffered a seizure. The paramedics took him to the hospital.
After undergoing many tests over the course of several days, he received a very
serious and life threatening diagnosis - Falx and parasagittal meningiomas: it
grows from the dural fold, called the falx, which runs between the left and
right sides of the brain. Because of the danger of injuring the sinuses,
removing a tumor in the falx or parasagittal region is extremely difficult. A
grim prognosis added to Christian’s bewildered and devastated outlook. ”
