Although he lost his mother at an early age of only 2 years, his aunt took good care of him and he was well until a strange disease attacked him at 3 years.

‘’It all started by my right eye itching and later and swelling like a pimple. At first my aunt took it for an ordinary eye ailment and simply administered an eye drop which didn’t help at all and the swelling continued to worsen covering other parts of the head and this compelled my aunt to take me to Mulago National Referral Hospital where i was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a cancer that affects the retina,” Kassujja recalls.
