CANCER ASSOCIATION NEWS
I find this rather unusual yet slightly hopeful from my side that we are looking for names of Cancer patients. Or have we finally beaten the disease here in Luderitz? I sincerely hope so, but if there are any patients out there that need a friendly face, a helpful hand or anythingâ€¦ let us know and give us your names. I like celebrating the life in people and with you I can. So think about it and give us your name. fight against Cancer and for allowing us to get the word out there.
On behalf of everyone I would like to thank:

Bank Windhoek in Luderitz and Keetmanshoop

Radiation is not effective either so please take a chance and go and see a doctor as you are more important alive to us.
