Sisterhood SA’s Moonlight Marathon

“Thrilled! We threw a fun party and a hiked a moonlight marathon and as a result
R15 000,00 has just been donated by The Sisterhood to provide mastectomies to 6!!! ladies from Jooste Hospital with aggressive breast cancer. So proud to be a part of such a great achievement! and we wish them well following their surgery…”

The 15 strong Sisterhood crew were inspired to raise money and awareness for an excellent breast cancer related charity programme. PROJECT FLAMINGO helps provide mastectomies to women who have aggressive breast cancer and who’s lives depend on timeous operations. Sadly they could have to wait up to 3 months for a procedure the rest of us would book in to have the following day. This project works with the excellent oncology clinic at Groote Schuur to provide extra surgeries after hours and on weekends to shorten the waiting list and literally save lives. The Sisterhood raised enough money in this challenge for 6 ladies to have their surgeries in the first week of January 2013.

THANK YOU!
