Sept/Oct 2020 – I am strong enough
Welcome to our Sept/Oct issue. September is a busy month with many cancer and health awareness months falling into it so we have tried to cover as many as possible.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is one of them and we share the incredible story of Joshua Sole facing embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in Warrior Josh. His sister, Courtney, tells us what it is like Being a sibling of a cancer patient (get your tissues ready!) Then Prof Gita Naidu informs us on the current standing of Childhood Cancer in South Africa.
Thyroid and prostate cancer awareness also fall in September so be sure to read Understanding thyroid cancer and My prostate cancer marathon. So is oral health, and oral hygienist, Sarie Liebenberg, enlightens us in Oral health related to oncology.
With the warmer weather, being active is so much easier and after reading Physical activity as cancer prevention, I hope we all will be exercising.
Enjoy the sunshine and make the best of our new normal.
Hope you enjoy this issue!
