Hospital corridors and wards can be drab, dreary and … clinical.
This can be even more noticeable in wards where children have to spend their time while being treated.
Chris Lategan was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and he says that with the help of cannabis oil and a very healthy diet he shrank it to an extent that they were then able to operate on it
He was treated at Tygerberg Hospital 3 months ago, and a few days ago was given the all-clear by his doctors.
In the meantime, to say thank you to the hospital (and being an art director in the film industry) he got some of his artist friends together, asked for volunteers, got an NPO (Daniel and Friends) on board, and got through the necessary red tape to get permission to re-decorate a ward for the children and put up murals.
It was his way of paying-it-forward.
