“I started this journey afraid of the unknown. I came to NOC, with warm smiles I was welcomed. My Nurses, Oncologist, admin staff were always friendly and smiling, not to forget the Social Worker.

“I had pancreas cancer, whereby I had a whipple operation in March 2017. I was in mediclinic for 3 weeks. In May I started with chemo. I became very ill and lost so much weight, but the special care I received at NOC in Windhoek helped me overcome the terrible time I had. A very very special thank you to ANNELIEN, WORSHIP, and COLLEEN, Dr Kahl, if it was not for you, I guess I would have given up up. Today after many months of suffering I'm clean by the grace of God . ” Elizabeth
