COMRADES FOR CANSA

Personal message

We are Desiree Verwey and Dawie Augustyn from Richards Bay. The cause we would like to raise funds for is CANSA Richards Bay. CANSA Richards Bay has a care centre as well as a care home for all cancer patients, which receives no funding from the Government and solely relies on community support and corporate funding to ensure the sustainability of the organisation and continued provision of services to the greater Zululand region.

With cancer affecting so many people, some being really close to us, we have decided to dedicate our 5th and 3rd comrades marathon run on 9th June 2019 to raise funds for the CANSA centre in Richards Bay. Funds generated from this account will be used to keep the CANSA care centre and care home in Richards Bay running. Funds will be used for the care of cancer patients that live far from Richards Bay and have to stay in the care home for 4-12 weeks for treatment.

It will cover their basic food items, transportation to their treatments, accommodation, counselling and support groups as well as renovations that need to be done to the care home to make it more suitable for the cancer patients. The funds will also be used for the upkeep of the care centre which provides a cancer clinic with cancer screening and testing, support groups and counselling for cancer patients, wigs for patients and is in partnership with M-Store to provide silicone for patients whom have gone through breast prosthesis.

Cancer is becoming more and more real in our everyday lives and your support to this great cause will be helping many fellow community members and friends with this dreadful disease, making their life a little easier and a little less stressful.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to CANSA Richards Bay.*
