“As a Nurse Counsellor, I provide support for cancer patients on their treatment journey, as well as educate the public about cancer and the importance of screening through workshops and public forums.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make use of technology to hold our workshops and forums online. Familiarising myself with this new way of doing things was a big hurdle for me, but I gave my best to learn in order to continue providing support for cancer patients.
My motivation for my work is simply to help my patients and see them happy. When patients that I’ve counselled a long time ago still remember me by name, it touches my heart and inspires me to continue doing what I do.”
