The Machi Filotimo Cancer Project is a non-profit company that was officially launched on 29th August 2019 and their goal is to raise awareness for people diagnosed with cancer. The Project was founded by Evy Michalopoulos in memory of her late Mother, Machi Michalopoulos, who passed away on 4th February 2018, World Cancer Day, from Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. Machi passed away within six weeks after diagnosis and Evy realized how difficult the path that one has to walk is, whether you are the patient or the family of the patient. Their purpose is to create awareness about Cancer, to educate on early detection and to render palliative care to Cancer patients. Together with their Partnered Institutions, they work harmoniously in all areas related to addressing Cancer control objectives in order to take care of patients with Cancer and support families of survivors. ROCSI is proud to be associated with this lovely organization. To find out more about the Machi Filotimo Cancer Project please click on this Link ( https://www.filotimo.org.za/ ).
