Kenyan musician diagnosed with brain tumour

17 July 2015, 17:59 Eugene Odanga

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. ”
