Welcome to the Oct/Nov issue. We have the delightful Arlene Sanford on the cover, and the way she is dealing with her metastatic stomach cancer diagnosis certainly binds well with our theme Braver and better. Read her story I’ve always had chutzpah.
Dr Daleen Geldenhuys educates us on Stomach cancer and why nutritional support is vital while Dr Rakesh Newaj explains What people with darker skin tones need to know about skin cancer.
See where two of our Cancer Warriors, Paula Robertson and Xolani Hlongwane, are now in Now and Then.
Happy reading and remember always spread the hope.
IN THIS ISSUE
October is one of our favourite months because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that means an extra-loaded magazine full of all things breasts. Super Survivor, Kguagelo Moyo, tells us how she sought a third opinion when she knew something wasn’t right with the lump in her breast. Read her story Always trust your gut.
Word For Word Media are pleased to present The 2023 Big C Survivor’s Guide, with the focus being the top five cancers
in South African women and men. We have also included the top five cancers affecting children. To all the survivors, our hope is that this booklet will assist in your journey, no matter how big or small, as long as you know you are not alone; we are here for you, we are oncology buddies.
