Danny Miles the Kenyan cancer patient who begged Safaricom to take care of his daughter when he is gone, has died.
Maurice Ochieng well known as Danny Miles caught the attention of Kenyans on 19th January 2023 when he penned a heartbreaking letter to Safaricom.
The 24 year old said he was living in his last days due to cancer that was getting worse with days.
“Helloo Safaricom, I am Maurice Ochieng known as Danny Miles. I am from Muhoroni town. In March last year, I was diagnosed with cancer, soft tissue sarcoma.”
The young dad said he had wanted to take his family for a vacation but the cancer had drained him. He asked Safaricom to take care of his young daughter once he is gone.
“It’s eating me up for sure. Day by day I am feeling. I had been saving so that I take my small family to a vacation but I have been drained. I can’t. I am living with the help of friends. My young Daughter Britney Dova is still young. She has not started school yet. I was planning but I am sorry I have failed as a dad. Had my left arm chopped off but still the cancer metastasized. I am appealing to you to just help my daughter once I am gone because I can feel it. My number is 0706345827. My wife’s number is 0757084605 (Florence Odege) or maybe treat us to a once-in-a-lifetime ride I will appreciate so much.”
News of his death broke last evening, March 21, 2023, as Kenyans flocked to send condolence messages to his family. According to his wife, Danny passed on at 10 pm last night.
A few days before his death, Miles had hinted that his health had deteriorated and he had little chance of making it.
“It attacked again and I really suffocated. Whatever Happens, I Belong to God,” he said.
Condolences to the family and may his soul rest in peace.
