Digital Design Specialist
Product support specialist Daniel Basson has a remarkable life story – young as he is. Growing up in Vredendal, Western Cape, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in Grade 11. Six months later he was in remission and finished his matric. As he was about to start university, he was diagnosed with brain cancer. That same year, between radiation sessions, he finished an online course in Financial Management through UCT. Declared cancer-free at the end of the year, he started a B Comm (Management Sciences) degree at the University of Stellenbosch the following year and graduated in 2016.
He founded Cancer Stories NPC and has shared his story in Italy, Botswana, Nepal and Namibia to small groups of people. Daniel’s hobbies range from photography, videography, guitar, singing and braaing.
