"Breast cancer diagnosis"

About: Good Hope Hospital

Recently found a lump in breast, things moved very quickly from diagnosis to surgery unfortunately resulting in a mastectomy. I could not praise my surgeon, surgical team, breast care nurses absolutely fantastic people. They got me though this with care and attention. On the ward nurses and all others staff did there very best to take care of all us. Lovely ladies. I know funds are tight but I have seen a lot of my family being treated through Good Hope and I know most say Good Hope no hope but I cannot fault anyone. Thank you for everything.
