Sad News: Cancer victim Carol Atuhirwe passes on in India

It is grief again in Kampala after learning the news of the passing on of peoples’ friend and cancer fighter, Carol Atuhirwe.

RIP: Carol Atuhirwe

Carol Atuhirwe of the famous ‘Save Carol Campaign’ passed on last evening in India where she was receiving specialised cancer treatment from. She died of throat and lung cancers.

Carol left the country a year ago for cancer surgery in India after a successful public campaign raised over Shs 360m that was needed for her treatment abroad.

She has been battling the dangerous disease for the last six years. Carol was supposed to travel to US for surgery but doctors later pulled out forcing her to head to India.

The family is set to release an official statement about her death. The general public raised Shs 353m of the 270m she needed for her treatment. The much publicized campaign made her a ‘sweetheart of Ugandans’. May her soul RIP.

Friends and family took to social media to mourning the passing of a great fighter. Below are some of the messages;
