Frail and feeble, Sandrine told Inyarwanda.com’s reporter that she began to feel bad since 6 months ago but unbeknownst of the condition.

“Unbeknownst of this condition, I’ve gone through various medical checkups and operations in various Rwandan hospitals, until I got transferred at Busoro Hospital where they diagnosed it as a cancer and told me there is nothing they can do, unless I go to India. Until now, they – doctors – told me that the cancer is at the level of my vagina but will soon spread to the other reproductive parts.” Sandrine told the reporter.

The film star stated that the Indian Hospital that talked to her told her that it will cost her $14500 to get treated (excluding flight and stay costs).
