NTV today embarks on a car washing fundraising campaign to raise Shs 100m for treating their former employee, Rosemary Nankabirwa.
The TV has already contributed Shs 10m on top of the Shs 7m that had been raised by staff and well-wishers in an ongoing social media campaign running under the hashtag #HelpRosemary.
Today, Saturday April 11, NTV employees joined by journalists and the public will gather at Serena hotel Car park and wash cars in a move to raise the money required to have Rosemary treated outside the country.
Nankabirwa, 35, is still at Mulago cancer institute and heart Institute battling cancer.
According to Nankabirwa’s mother, Rebecca Kibirige, the doctors found that Rosemary has a rare cancer called adrenal cortical carcinoma.
Rosemary Nankabirwa’s older brother, Ronald Bisereko, says his sister is strong enough to beat the rare, yet aggressive cancer.
Ronald and the family are very appreciative of the love pouring in from all over the country including on social media, from different media houses, especially NTV, and the general public aimed at ensuring Rosemary Nanakabirwa gets the treatment she needs.
The money contributed will help in getting her out of the country to receive specialized care she needs to beat the rare cancer.
