Despite the pain she is going through, cancer patient Carol Atuhirwe has always flashed a radiant smile.
But she broke into tears at her prayer service at All Saints Cathedral in Nakasero this Wednesday morning. However, it was tears of joy as she was overwhelmed by the support she received in her drive to raise Shs270m for treatment in the US. People donated generously and Shs324 was raised.
Carol has already directed that the surplus be given to the Uganda Cancer Institute and she has a Thank You Note for everyone who donated to her cause. Read on.
I greet you all in the name of the Almighty God.
I know each one of us has his or her own religion. Nevertheless, this has not stopped us from coming together to join me in this cry for restoration of my life. What unites us is that we all believe in one God.
You have all loved me and showed me much love. Everyone of you contributed what they could and I am very thankful. GOD blessed us differently But that didn’t stop your beautiful hearts from supporting me, praying for me and fasting for me. Everyone contributed in his or her own way.
When I think of all those that have contributed without knowing me from Uganda and the diaspora, I cry not because am sick but because of all your goodness to me. You have been a blessing to me and I will forever be thankful. If we can maintain this unity, I believe God will bless this world even more. My dear friends, we can do good deeds God in heaven being our guide.
I want to end by thanking my friends who I will not mention by name but those who started this campaign. I want to thank all those who made the campaign known through main stream media and social media. I love you, I love you so much. Please, thank you. It is because of you that I have gained hope. With these few words, I want to ask you to continue praying for me. I look forward to saying hello, laughing and eating with you. Father GOD, bless me and hear my cry.
Dear Lord, I pray a blessing upon your people, fill their lives with happiness. For all they have given, all they have done, Natural warmth like gentle sun, Many generous, selfless deeds, Lord give to them and meet them at their point of need. Cover them with Your holy love; Write their names in heaven above.
I really appreciate them,
they are helpful, giving ways, And they have generous hearts bless them for their unselfishness displays. I thank them for their kindness, I will not forget them; they are the the nicest people I have ever met.
Thank you for doing what you have done; You are kind beyond belief; Your help and caring calmed me down, And gave me Hope.
For now I will trust and Obey In the Lord.
