Siphokazi Dlamini (34) is unemployed and is currently seeking employment opportunities.
In 2021, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is a qualified electrical engineer and has a computer qualification as well.
The Alex woman says, because of her illness, she is unable to work as an electrical engineer or heavy jobs.
Now she can only take lighter jobs. She asks for a Good Samaritan to come to her rescue.
“I have been applying for jobs, but with no luck,” she says.
When she was diagnosed with cancer, she had a lot of questions.
“I felt so bad and hurt. I didn’t understand why.
She says she goes to gym regularly and eats healthily.
To make matters worse, her mother passed away the same year in April.
” It was not an easy thing at all. At one point, I wanted to take my own life. But my best friend, sister Phestina gave me hope.”
Dlamini describes breast cancer as generic.
“I would like to talk to young women with breast cancer and provide them with hope.
“Life goes on after cancer,” she says.
Her formula consists of eating healthy and adopting a healthy lifestyle.
She says women should visit local health facilities for physical examination once a year.
“If they find anything, it can be treated in an early stage,” concludes the woman originally from Mthatha Eastern Cape.
She says she’d be happy if someone could help her find employment.
