Before I was started on oral liquid morphine medicine by the Nurse at Kitovu Mobile, I had a lot of pain in my body. I thought the pain I had was killing me slowly. I am glad that I got medicine to deal with that kind of pain.

During the five years when my husband was bedridden at home with cancer, a team of health workers kept visiting us to offer care instead of us carrying him to the hospital all the time. It would have been very difficult for us to continue transporting him in his condition. I am very grateful to the palliative team at Kitovu Mobile.

When I was diagnosed with cancer of the breast, I had no money to pay for more medical tests and the operation until Hospice Jinja came to my rescue. They covered the costs. I urge the government to provide all cancer care services free of charge to Ugandans because many cannot afford the high costs involved.
