Della's journey to OMTOM2019 and fundraising for the Groote Schuur Hospital Oncology Department started with her father's cancer diagnosis in 2011. Though Della's father lost his fight with cancer in 2014, the GSH Oncology Department currently treats Della's aunt who is battling breast cancer. Della, through accompanying family and friends to the hospital, has frequently been exposed to the unit and has noted the rise in cancer patients. Della is an AGENT OF CHANGE for her country and is committed to raise funds for the Groote Schuur Hospital Oncology Unit through Kilos4Cancer.
ABOUT THE GROOTE SCHUUR HOSPITAL RADIATION ONCOLOGY UNIT
The unit sees more than 3 00 new patients annually. In addition, 38 000 patients are seen annually at the units' follow up clinics. Cancer patients are a brave and vulnerable group who deserve to be treated with care and compassion in an environment conducive to the promotion of wellness. A target of R500k has been set to be used to refurbish the waiting and clinical areas of the unit. In addition, it is hoped that in the near future a patient recovery area will be added.
