Atuhirwe is battling with throat and lung cancer which has subjected her to 30 minor and major operations in the last five years, she now feeds through a tube, communicates by only writing as the surgeries affected her throat so she can't talk. Out of the required funds, there is still a balance of about 100 million after realizing over 50 million in yesterday's car wash.
