K24 Senior anchor Anjilee Gadhvi has died after a long battle with cancer.
Ghadhvi succumbed to lung cancer at the Aga Khan Hospital at 3:15pm on Friday, January 10.
The journalist was first diagnosed with liver cancer in April 2014, when she was expecting her second child.
Ghadhvi underwent a liver transplant after the cancerous cells kept on recurring two years after she began chemotherapy
Confirming the news, K24 Media max editor in chief Peter Opondo has posted this on his twitter page.
Oh my friend @AnjleeGadhvi You fought that cancer beast with all your might. You did it for your kids, husband. Never lost hope. You always smiled through the pain & insisted on coming to work even at your weakest points. We believed you were winning…until now! RIP my friend.
