Kitovu Mobile Palliative Care services Insulating Lukyamuzi against intense cancer, age-related-pains
BY MOSES MUWULYA,COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
Lukyamuzi Paul is 85 years old. He has advanced cancer of prostate. This medical condition used to bring pain to a man who is already braving age-related-pains. A resident of Jongooza,Kalisizi sub county,Kyotera District,Paul suffered from this double trauma for close to a year.
But since he was referred for Palliative Care at Kitovu Mobile,three months ago,Paul,who was referred by Masaka Regional Refferal Hospital, appreciatively notes: ” I have a sigh of relief from pain”
He adds :” Then,I could not get out of my bedroom. I could stay inside,sink in pain; and wished nothing apart from death. But now I can move out, walk around my compound, which is all attributed to the drugs emotional support I get from Kitovu Mobile”
His son, who is apparently taking care of him, is quick to attest to what his father shares, saying: “You (referring to Kitovu Mobile Palliative Care team that had paid a home visit) have really done us good”
Kitovu Mobile appreciates the generosity of Segal Family Foundation,Palliative Care association Of Uganda and other partners for supporting us render this noble service to hundreds of patients with life threatening chronic illnesses in Greater Masaka
