"I wake up and I come to see the children that only yesterday looked like they are dying but today are playing around. That's what gives me the joy and motivation to keep doing my work with diligence".
From humble beginnings
Enyo's achievement might look great currently but she indicates that it all began from a tiny desire she had as a child.
"I had an aunt who was a nurse in a rural community. She could stay 24 hours with a patient if the need be and seeing her commitment encouraged me to become a nurse myself," she recalls.
Speaking about her award, Enyo stated:
"A lot of nurses, doctors, and other professionals are doing so much but to be able get recognized by an organization as big as SIOP Africa is such a big prize and no amount of money can pay me enough for the honor that has been done me."
In Ghana, about 1200 children under the age of 15 are estimated to develop cancer annually
