Welcome to the first issue of 2021.
I couldn’t think of a better cancer warrior to have on our first cover than Lerato Monyatsi. Her positive attitude and excitable energy is so refreshing and sets a great vibe for this year and her courage is definitely contagious! Read how she is accepting to live with a permanent stoma in Summiting the mountain called colon cancer.
March is Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month so Dr Philippa Ashmore puts Multiple Myeloma in the spotlight. Dr Lizette Louw educates us on PSMA therapy in metastatic prostate cancer and we hear the wonders of a drug in Is imatinib the underutilised dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans miracle?
May you all experience happiness and joy despite the obstacles that 2021 may hold.
