Donance Kangausaru – Treatment Followup

On the 16th of November, We published an article explaining how Oncocare planned to assist Mr. Kangausaru with local treatment.

His story is so inspiring we have decided to share it with you:

It all started when I noticed a very small lump below the bottom of my right eye which I thought was just a swollen artery. It was painless at first so I brushed it off, telling myself that it would disappear.  As the lump grew in size it became a tumor and the pain increased.

I first went to Parirenyatwa Hospital for treatment. Results from tests carried out revealed that the tumor was in fact cancerous. The tumour was operated on, but reappeared after a few months. The pain was excruciating, especially when trying to close my eyes. It came to a point where I was only using my left eye.


I was hopeless. I thought that was the end of my life. I was referred to India, but did not have the$10 000 required for medical treatment and related traveling expenses. I could smell my death and was in unbearable pain. I appealed to the public for assistance and received an overwhelming response which I am grateful for. However, the donations were far from enough. Raising the funds was proving to be a tremendous challenge.


Right at the point when I was losing hope, I received a call that changed my life. It was from Oncocare Cancer Centre Zimbabwe, offering to give me a new lease of life by offering medical treatment. Suddenly, there was hope. Oncocare Zimbabwe, a local Cancer treatment center, heard my plight through efforts of the media. Oncocare championed my cause by offering and coordinating my treatment in the form of CT scans and pathology services as well as pulling together their medical resources and network of related specialists and hospital. All my treatment was done locally in Zimbabwe instead of traveling to India. My hope was revived and I was full of life again.


During the middle January 2017 I was booked at West End Clinic for an operation to remove the tumour and it was successfully done by our local clinicians. I could not believe that such a major operation could be done here in Zimbabwe without any complications. I am really grateful that we have such a great team of local experienced doctors. Now I am a free man; my eye sight is restored and the pain is bearable as I am on my way to recovery.

I would like to thank all who have assisted me in various ways including the operating doctor, anaesthetist, West End Hospital, the media who have brought my cause to the public front and last but not least Oncocare Zimbabwe. For me besides that I am feeling better, the other important part is that I got treatment in Zimbabwe instead of going to India for cancer treatment.

Mr. Kangausaru with Oncocare C.E.O, Mr Deda

To all Zimbabweans and the world at large, I say this monster called Cancer is real. Seek diagnosis and treatment early. Do not ignore any lump or waste time blaming illness on witchcraft. We need to educate each other about the various forms of Cancer, hence programs like Cancer Awareness campaigns should be carried out regularly. Cancer is a killer disease if treatment is not done early. Let us unite and fight this fiery animal. Every day people are dying due to cancer related diseases. It is a national disaster.

Let us help each other. Early detection, early treatment and a life is saved. Let us have faith in local doctors. They can do it. Oncocare and its partners did it for me.

Merry Christmas from Oncocare

Oncocare Zimbabwe would like to wish a very warm Christmas full of peace and good health to our dear patients and partners – past, present and future.

We have witnessed growth in our  Oncocare community since the inception of Oncocare Zimbabwe. Local Cancer treatment dialogue has increased on our various media platforms. Interest and participation in Cancer awareness events has also increased and, most importantly, the number of people walking through our doors to inquire about treatment options has grown over the year 2016. This could not have been done with out you, our valued Oncocare Community and so we say:


We hope to continue on this upward trend in the years to come, building a community mind-set, a sense of accountability and responsibility towards the fight against Cancer. Our aim is to widen our reach to people in Zimbabwe and the surrounds, affording them the chance to know about and access oncology services locally. Together, this is possible.

We look forward to increased dialogue, early diagnoses and treatment, educating one another and ultimately reducing the Cancer burden in Zimbabwe and its surrounds.

Never under-estimate the power of word of mouth. Tell someone and you could help save a life.


Merry Christmas and prosperous new year to you and yours.


Oncocare Zimbabwe
