The Sponsors of Brave campaign – first nominee of the week Dr Liana Roodt

Doctor Liana Roodt found her calling in changing the lives of breast cancer
patients. After witnessing the saddening, stretched out and complicated
hoops cancer patients in the public health sector had to jump through for
treatment, Dr Roodt felt that something needed to be done to help these
patients. This is when she founded the NGO “Project Flamingo” as a means to
alleviate the waiting time and trauma of seeking cancer treatment in the
public health sector. She aims to not only reduce the surgical waiting time
for patients, but also offer them psychological support during the treatment

Watch as some of her clients share the emotional stories of how Dr Liana
Roodt and her incredible initiative has changed and saved their lives on
