Today after morning prayers we were really shown how grateful all the staff were of our work. They gave us small little traditional African craft along with a badge and T-shirt as well as a card signed by the staff. It was really great to see their appreciation towards everything we had done and it gave us a sense of achievement. We made our way over to the clinical block to the case conference, which is held every Thursday. The cases that are presented intrigue the medical staff and are brought up with the other medical teams for advice and a second opinion. The first case was about a 55 year old woman with breast cancer, which had spread to her spine, causing a few of the discs to collapse which in turn caused extreme back spine, immobility, night sweats and weight loss.
