Elizabeth Wakiuru Mathangani passed away in Jersey City, New Jersey on October 24 after a short but aggressive fight with breast cancer. She discovered a tumor in February 2013 and started treatment from March to July.
She was given a clean bill of health by late August. She resumed her work. Recently, she started to feel pain on her right arm, which doctors said, could be a response to the scar healing. About two weeks ago, the pain became unbearable and she was rushed to the ER. In the ER, it was discovered that the pain was due to a clot on her artery from the neck leading to the brain.While working on the clot, some scans showed the cancer had shifted to the lungs and it was at stage 4.
Elizabeth was 48 years old. She has a 28-year-old daughter and 26-year-old son. Elizabeth was a resident of Jersey City, New Jersey at the time of her untimely death. As expected, Elizabeth’s remains will be returned to her family in Nyeri, Kenya.
