Thanks for visiting our fundraising page.
The morning of the 14th July 2009 would change our lives forever. Skyla, our daughter, aged 2 years 2 months, was diagnosed with a Stage 2a neuroblastic tumour in her neck. Our little girl was about to embark on a journey no person should ever have to walk, and we would discover emotions we never dreamed existed ....... our world fell apart.
Skyla is now in remission and in 2011, and we will be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak in order to raise funds for CHOC, the Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa.

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.
