Annemie Venter

Radiation Therapist

I have 20 years’ plus experience in my profession having worked in various oncology facilities. My qualifications include the degree Baccalareus in Radiography (Diagnostic), Honours degree Baccalareus in Radiography (Therapy) and a Master’s degree in Health Education obtained in January 2014 at the University of the Free State, Bloemfontein.

“Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things decay.”

In my first few years in this profession, I became aware of a growing passion to improve the quality of life of cancer patients. I am driven by the knowledge that our profession and technology saves lives and reduces pain and suffering of those who are terminally ill. My conviction to make a difference every day lead me to do a master’s degree in health education with my thesis devoted to improved and focused healthcare for cancer patients with head and neck cancer. I have learned so much about the human spirit and the effect we can have on the lives of others that I am able to draw from that in my personal life and my relationships with loved ones, friends and fellow human beings. People are God’s ultimate creation.
