Marilyn Lewis

I currently work in the Day stay Oncology unit at ICON Cancer Centre. I have worked as a Nurse for 26 year. In 2007 I starting working for ADRA as an AID worker in PNG for 3 years where I was the HIV Coordinator for PNG and then the last 5 years working in Nepal as a Health advisor for the many Health projects that ADRA Nepal have done. I have loved working in Developing Countries improving the transference of skills to those in similar professions. In 2014 we moved to New Zealand where I returned to Oncology Nursing, and then onto Australia in 2016 where I currently working in Radiation and Chemotherapy day hospital. I love travelling, listening to music, watching movies, making new friends and helping in the communities where I have lived. I have a passion to help those who have no voice and those in need. I love seeing a need and being able to have the opportunity to act on it.
