Rosemary battling adrenal gland cancer

The mother of former NTV news anchor, Rosemary Nankabirwa, has spoken out revealing how her daughter discovered that she had adrenal gland cancer.

Rosemary had travelled to London to pursue a Masters Degree in Journalism and Communication but during her last semester, in September 2014, she developed complications that saw her put on too much weight within a month, it was then that I asked her to come back to Uganda.

Initially, I thought she was eating too much junk food but she said no, she came back on 23 December, 2014 and off we went to Mulago Hospital for a series of tests. The doctors found out that she had a swelling in her left tumor which was successfully removed but it was discovered she also had diabetes.

We had hoped she could go back to UK but she became so weak to travel so we decided to come to the Cancer Institute. "I never wanted to tell anyone that she was sick, even her colleagues got to know this late. I did not want to deal with journalists. The first journalist to see her was the late Bbale Francis, they laughed and shared a lot when he visited."

Rosemary does not like visitors who come to visit her and end up crying, "Iam requesting all our friends to visit her when she gets better, for her immunity is low."

She also talks of a caretaker at the cancer institute who took Mary's pic while in a wheel-chair, this picture ended up on social media, that picture broke my heart.

The NTV staff car wash to raise funds for Rosemary Nankabirwa is currently on at Serena Hotel, shs 100 million plus is required for her treatment and by yesterday, at least the fund had shs 50 million.

Rosemary was the first female news anchor at NTV.
