Ntokozo Dludla is an avid palliative care worker and counsellor who strives to make sure Breast Cancer patients get the best care possible. Although the work can be emotionally draining, she loves her job.
“My work is about supporting people to live their lives despite sometimes end-of-life diagnosis. I became an educator to support people to live their lives as fully as possible despite limitations.”
Ntokozo’s daily duties include assessment, counselling, liaising with local resources and agencies, training with development activities and staff support. Being a Breast Cancer survivor herself, Ntokozo knows that cancer is dark and gloomy, but says there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.
