“The organs around the tumour couldn’t tolerate any more radiation. So, the treatments had to be focused very precisely. Honestly, this felt like my last shot at being treated. But, as they were describing what Novalis Tx™ can do, the clinicians projected a positive, can-do attitude that really helped to restore my hopes for a positive outcome. After the first four sessions, I felt well enough to go back to work. On the last day of treatment, which fell on a Saturday, I left the centre and was able to go on with my usual weekend activities.”The Novalis Tx was previously only available overseas, but South African oncologists and patients can benefit from this groundbreaking new technology. Treatment is currently available at Life Hilton Private Hospital in the Natal Midlands and Life Eugene Marais Hospital in Pretoria, Gauteng.
