Atuhirwe Carol suffers from lung cancer and breathes through a tube inserted in her throat.
She needs $80,000 for surgery which has been scheduled in USA. This includes the flight and living expenses while she undergoes treatment.
The cost in Ugandan shillings is 270 million.
With the recent news of the only radiotherapy cancer treatment machine broken down in Uganda, Carol’s only hope is to fly out of the country to get the surgery and treatment she needs.
Her friends and family have set up a crowd funding account which currently only has $510 collected.
They will also receive donations via mobile money on these two numbers. +256784168178 or +256701930150
Cancer seems very distant until it strikes someone close to you or even you.
