As a GACCF Ambassador, Mandela will use her voice to advocate for GACCF’s work in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). She will also educate the public about GACCF’s mission to educate physicians and medical specialists who work in the field of oncology and highlight the foundation’s role in treating cancer in these countries, where more than 65 percent of all cancer deaths globally occur.
“I am very excited to represent GACCF as its Ambassador and cancer survivor to raise more awareness for those who are suffering from cancer because they don’t have access to adequate care and treatment,” said Mandela. “As a GACCF Ambassador, I want to use my influence to help beat cancer in the most vulnerable corners of the world. The solutions to treating cancer as a global problem are to educate caregivers and to make medical equipment more readily available for early diagnosis. This will translate to more appropriate lifesaving therapy.” – Zoleka Mandela
