It's just a fact, you can't evby Harris Rodgers

WINDHOEK Air Force Ones Outle Wholesale , March 27 (Xinhua) -- Finding out that, in a rare turn of medical events, she had stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 18, Reginalda Muronga was devastated. Cancer at such a stage is usually terminal. This news shattered every life's goal that she ever had.

As for Reginalda, when meeting her, one would never think that she was recently battling a life threatening disease that has claimed many lives the world over.

At that point, "I stopped living and I was just waiting for the final days," she said.

The depression took its toll and she got even sicker; she believed that she could feel the cancer in her body.

"I was becoming very forgetful and my body felt like a paper. I was frail and fragile. The cancer was going to stage 4 and it was becoming dangerous," she said.

"I had a 10 hour operation and they safely removed the entire tumor and infected tissue," she said.

After the operation, she was sent to Cape Town to check if she was cancer free and she was.

"They gave me hope and encouragement that it was actually possible to beat the cancer Cheap Nike Air Force 1 Wholesale ," she said.

"I cannot let cancer define who I am and who I want to be. This has made me strong. I was actually the first person in my family to pass grade 10 and go on to university. The people who gave me hope and support, encouraged me to go on and helped me make it through my lowest points. I am grateful to them for their care," she said.

Last year, the Reach for Recovery group visited and helped about 72 patients all around the country.

"We help both patients and family on how to cope with the situation Authentic Nike Air Force 1 Wholesale ," Kavetuna said.

The group has so far trained about 25 volunteers who function under the auspices of the Cancer Association of Namibia. The volunteers are called in to counsel and talk to cancer patients on how to live positively with the condition.
