Motivational Speaker - Cape Town
Lizelle Knott


Lizelle is a mother, a wife, a Lymphoma Survivor, a Breast Cancer Warrior and a proud Cancervive team member.

At the age of 16 she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins B-Cell Lymphoma in her chest cavity and underwent 10 rounds of chemo.

17 years later another cancer diagnosis rocked her world. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a unilateral mastectomy, 6 rounds of chemo and today continues her fight against this deadly disease.

Lizelle is involved with Cancervive, a national Cancer Awareness and Education project.

She enthusiastically shares her story and educates others on the warning signs of cancer and encourages them to seek medical help should they have concerns.

Lizelle Knott


In her own words: I want to inspire people. I want someone going through a similar journey as I did to look at me and say: "Because of you, I didn't give up".

I want to encourage woman who have been diagnosed with cancer, to realise that regardless of the scars, or the hair loss, or how sick they may feel they are still beautiful. They're still a woman, a wife, a mother. And they were given this life because they are STRONG enough to live it!
