Video:Sad story of Father, Mother and daughter’s body held in India over medical bills

A Kenyan couple is being held in India along with the body of their daughter due to unpaid medical bills.

The couple had accompanied their daughter Patricia Mwangi who was suffering from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma to a New Delhi hospital to seek treatment.

Patricia, 29,  however passed away  on December 28, 2012 while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Patricia had earlier being misdiagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma after she went to a doctor in Kenya. She underwent six stages of chemotherapy before a second opinion by a different doctor discovered the misdiagnosis.

The parents are held in India together with the body and the family needs Sh3.7 million to pay off bills and secure their release.

Patricia’s sister, Vicky, speaking on behalf of the family is appealing to well wishers to assist them in raising the funds and is also appealing to the Kenya High Commission in India as well as the government to come to their aid.

This will enable the release of the parents as well as the repatriation of Patty’s body to Kenya for burial.
