I have interviewed many cancer patients, yet during the interview with Liezl Nell I was brought to tears and I questioned why. Is it because she is only six years younger than me so it hit close to home? Or is it that she is so accepting of the diagnosis as she learnt integral life lessons from it? Both most probably. Nonetheless, her humility touched me. Read her story Keeping life sweet.
Another incredible story is that of The miracle of Khaya; he was given 48 hours to live when diagnosed with leukaemia at three months. Next year, he will be starting Grade 1.
Thank you to Rae van Nieuwenhuizen for her bravery and honesty in sharing how she dealt with radiation dermatitis in Conquering the aftermath.
Revolution in the treatment of chronic lymphoblastic leukaemia, Nuclear medicine, and Neuroendocrine tumours are great educational articles.
Thank you to all the readers for their support this year. Make the best of this last stretch of 2020.
Hope you enjoy this issue!
