Most early (superficial) esophageal cancers are detected unexpectedly or during screenings. Visit your doctor for regular screenings and take note of these warning signs

Why is home nursing important?

Home nursing allows the caregiver to spend more quality time with the patient.
A caregiver cares for the health and well-being of someone who needs help with daily tasks and activities. Your loved one may need a caregiver because of an injury, mobility or memory issues, illnesses, or chronic conditions that make everyday chores more challenging.

At Creative Wellness, we provide professional, individualized support and care to people with:
~Cancer
~Dimentia
~Parkinsons and strokes
~Wound care
~Terminal illnesses
~Recuperation/recovery from operations
~Elderly persons

Die dankbaarheid van kanker

Eers ry ek net verby en is dit ‘n iemand anders gebou. Ver weg. Toe word dit ‘n skoonpa gebou.
Ons sit regop in die wagkamer en praat in fluisterstemme.
Daar is mense met min hare of geen hare. Nie ons mense nie.
En toe word dit my gebou.
My Liefie se oë is vol trane en toe woede: “Jy moes geluister het toe ek gesê het gaan dokter toe.” Toe weer word haar oë vol bang.

Ek worstel met die besluit van behandeling of nie. Ek is nie bang vir doodgaan nie. Ek slaan my oë op na die berge, waar sal my hulp vandaan kom. En ek begin leer van dankbaarheid.

Dankie vir Olge, Christie en Neelje en dankie vir mense wat hulle pyn en vrese met my deel. Dankie vir kollegas met onsigbare engelvlerke wie vir weke kos aanry elke dag volgens hul eie rooster.
Kollegas wie my gras kom sny vir maande en kollegas en vriende wie gemmerkoekies en beskuit aandra vir naar en bid en bel en boodskappe stuur. Vir gebede. Dankbaarheid vir gebede. ‘n Buurvrou wie kos oor die muur aangee en bid.

Ek leer van vriende wie twaalf ure en sewe ure voor chemo tee maak sodat ek my 42 en 42 pille kan drink en dit nie alleen doen nie. Bernie en my Liefie. Half-tien saans en half-drie soggens. Lexi wie saamgaan vir die kankeruitslag. Ek leer van omgee en ek word geneem vir chemo en weer opgelaai 5 ure later. Rene. En ek leer weereens die waarde van my Sus en Theo en my Boet en Deli. En kleinlyfies. Wie bid en kerse brand. En ry om my te kom haal.

En by Cancercare leer ek dankbaarheid vir stil figure wie geduldig ‘n aar soek vir ‘n chemo drup en wie kombersies aandra.
Ek leer van ontvangsdames wie moeite doen en ‘n onkoloog met ‘n g’n nonsens attitude en ‘n massiewe groot braai malvalekker omgee hart.
Ek leer van mense en grenslose omgee al raak pasiente ongeduldig en onbeskof. Ek staan in awe van mense wie geduldig oor die foon verduidelik dat hulle weet mevrou is bang en ons bel onmiddelik sodra die uitslae kom.
Hoe doen julle dit?
Ek is bang. Dis nuwe onbekende goed en julle glimlag en bly geduldig. Weet julle dat julle in stilte engele is?
Weet julle van my dankbaarheid dat julle dit makliker maak? Julle doen die mediese fonds magtigings en ek haal asem want daaroor hoef ek nie te stres nie. Weet julle hoe waardevol dit is?

Ek sit in stilte terwyl die chemo in my are drup en sien die tiener met ‘n mamma gebreide kombers alleen haar chemo kry. Covid hou mammas en geliefdes uit die chemo kamer. Ek sien die vrou wat naar en bleek haar chemo kry en hospitaal toe gaan vir ontwatering. Ek weet daar is engele wie onsigbaar teen mure leun en oor ons staan en die chemo kamer vul en dat God hulle stuur. Ek sien ou omies en tannies en jong mense en ek sien my.

Chemo maak my bene pyn. Diep seer wat dae aanhou en stadig my so moeg maak. Maar die pyn leer my van my engel Freda wie my sesuur kom oplaai en in die spreekkamer my ‘n drup insit en so die pyn draaglik maak. Ek weet Amor is ‘n engel.
Lankal.
Sy praat moed in en stuur boodskappe na elke chemo.
En skryf voorskrifte vir pyn.
En gee om.
Die spreekkamer van engele.

6 Chemo’s, elkeen 3 weke uitmekaar. En toe 25 bestralings. Een elke dag. Saterdag en Sondag nie. Ek leer geduld. En ek leer van jong vroue wie my help reglê op die bed en dan uitgaan sodat ek bestraling kan kry.
Die masjien se blou liggies is beautiful en teen die plafon maak watervlekke amoebas en luister ek na lekkerkry musiek.

Die jong vrouens is mense.
Soos ek.
En jy.
Pasiënte is soms moeilik en hulle bly geduldig.
Weet hulle hoe waardevol hulle is?

Hulle glimlag en verduidelik en maak my vrese minder. Want al weet ek met my hele hart dat ek nie die pad alleen en onnodig stap nie, en dat my God my plek-plek dra, vrees ek soms. Want bestraling gee gastro en maak my blaas onbeheerbaar, en hulle geduld en lag en glimlag maak dit makliker.
En weer leer ek van ‘n ontvangsdame met engelvlerke. Cancercare, die plek van engele.

En dan leer ek van net vandag. Nie more of gister nie, net vandag.
En dat ‘n deurmekaar huis nie die wêreld se draai laat stop nie. En om dankie te sê. En “Ek is lief vir jou.” Want mense en die vir wie jy lief is, is ongelooflik kosbaar.
Dus, dankie God vir kanker en die leerproses daarvan.

Ek is geseënd.

In November 2019, I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer.
I accepted my situation and face it with positivity.

My art is currently my life. I enjoy painting.
My wife, family, and friends give meaning to my life.

My word of hope to others living with cancer:
“Embrace your situation, trust in God,
and depend on your family and friends.”

Ek is Karien Smit en ‘n survivor van kolorektale kanker.
Ek is in 2013 stage 4 gediagnoseer.

Na behandeling verby was het ek n stoma sakkie laat "afhaal."
Die paadjie van magie tot nolletjie was ongelukkig nie oop nie en ek het met septesemia en baie derm probleme te doen gekry en 8 operasies in 3 jaar.

Omdat my pad maar relatief rof was en ek die dood verkeie kere self in die oë gestaar het, en ‘n hele paar vriende en ‘n familielid verloor het, is die boodskap wat ek deur my kuns wil uitbring dat die dood nie die finale sê het nie.

En al sterf party mense, is ons nogsteeds oorwinnaars en ontvangers van ons ewige beloning saam Jesus.

In 2018, my sister Lesa was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. My father-in-law had prostate cancer.

This portrait entitled Precious Life I did of my sister in her last days of her cancer fight. Hospice played an incredible role in those final months of my her life.

I am a professional artist, fortunate enough to live my passion. I’m based in Knysna and my studio is on Thesen Harbour Town.

The therapeutic impact of art is well-researched. As a post-conflict and post-emergency humanitarian, working in some of the most amazing countries in the world, I’ve been fortunate to use art as a composing tool for counselling children, as well as addressing gender-based violence and post-traumatic stress disorders.

For the Footprints of Hope Art Exhibition 2021, I have chosen art that can relate to my brother who lost his life last year to cancer.

Clinton was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in February 2019. After surgery to remove the tumor and part of his stomach and esophagus, he was found to be clear from cancer; however, later he presented with recurrent cancer and received chemo.

The cancer continued to spread into his bones and the lining between the skull and brain. Radiation was offered, but he chose not to continue. Clinton passed away on 2 July 2020.

My work focuses on the feelings of losing a brother, father, and son as I see it from my perspective. It shows something of how my mother lost her son – of how all of us lost someone who was a big part of all our lives.

Included in my exhibition work is a letter from my mom to my brother.
