============================================================

 

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! On 3 March 2012, I will be shaving my hair off in an effort to raise funds for children and their families who are affected by cancer.  Cancer has touched my life personally; the most recent being with my Mom's diagnosis with Brain Cancer.  In an effort to help those families, I have chosen Rainbows and Smiles as my charity of choice.

Rainbows and Smiles are a small NPO that was started in 2008 by Bonita Suckling after her own son, Jed Brady Thomas, was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 3. She saw what families go through while in treatment and realised there was a need that she could fulfil since she had lived the journey herself.

Sadly Jed passed away on 11 July 2011 after a brave 3 year fight (he was initially given 6 months). Rainbows and Smiles assist families that are fighting childhood (0 to 16 years) cancer with emotional and financial support. They will pay medical bills, buy food vouchers, pay for petrol money, etc as when cancer strikes usually the mother cannot work any longer as the child requires 24/7 care. They also spoil kids while in treatment and support mom’s after a child has passed. Rainbows and Smiles also have a programme where we spoil the ‘forgotten’ siblings as when a child has cancer understandably the parents attention is usually focused on the sick child.

The organisation is run by 6 ladies from their homes – only Bonni does this fulltime, the rest of them have fulltime jobs so they squeeze in what they can at night and on the weekends!
