Rookaya Hoosen

Radiation Therapist

I’m a people’s person. I enjoy interacting and working with different people, and am known for being a great listener, whether I’m engaging with patients or staff. I graduated at the Durban University of Technology in 2013.

“We rise by lifting other people!”

My passion for this field is based on a personal experience. My cousin was 4 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer. I will always be grateful to the radiotherapy team that helped him and our family. This made me pursue a career in radiotherapy, wanting to give back and help other people and families.
