"It is absolutely a dream come true, today is the first day that the public has seen this magnificent hospital and wellness centre... we''ve been working on it a long time, it''s been a 10 year vision and nine years fund raising and we''re just delighted," she said.
Detailing the massage facilities at the clinic, she adds, "I know from my own experience that healing touch can be very helpful when you''re going through cancer because it''s pretty disturbing, and just to feel human touch is really wonderful." PTI BB
