Njambi passed on at the Nairobi hospital on June 3, 2024.

She suffered from endometriosis since she was 13. She underwent 21 surgeries to treat the disease.

Even in her battle with endometriosis, her family said, Njambi's strength and hope never wavered.

She became a global advocate for women suffering from the disease, offering support, and advice, and tirelessly organising campaigns to raise awareness.

In 2018, Njambi underwent life-changing surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, but her fight did not end there.

She continued to research, speak to others battling endometriosis, and organise events to bring attention to the cause.

'Her resilience and dedication were truly inspiring," the family added.
