As you know my gorgeous baby brother lost his battle against cancer on 25 August 2010 and one way I can give back to help someone keep a loved one when hit with any form of cancer is to raise funds and awareness, we are so many that can do so much if only we put our hearts to it.
Im riding the 94.7 Cycle Challenge with the the CHOC Cows, this race will be in my calf outfit cos Im a bit out of training but next time am moving up in rank!!! Will keep you updated and hopefully can show u some interesting pics too.
A beeg sincere thank you extra strong Debsta hug!!
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.
Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
