Christmas in July Tracey Chorley

Christmas in July Tracey Chorley

Personal message

Hello everyone,

We would like to introduce ourselves to you. I am Chantel Naidoo, Randpark Ridge, Randburg, a colleague and friend of Tracey Chorley. I have partnered with Tracey’s daughter, Caley van der Schyff, to pay tribute to her very special mom.

We are raising funds for Tracey, who is 49 years old and lives in Cape Town, South Africa. Tracey and I started working together when I joined Merchants SA in 2012, 8 years ago. We often reflect on how our relationship has progressed from starting as colleagues, becoming friends and we now feel like close family.

Tracey had been diagnosed with rectum cancer 4 years ago, she underwent treatment and was in remission. 10 months ago, the cancer spread to her lymph nodes and colon, she underwent surgery to remove the colon, and a colonoscopy bag was put in and the cancerous lymph nodes were remove from her right leg. A few weeks ago, the family was informed the cancer was back and has spread to her pelvic bones and lungs. Tracey cannot undertake anymore radiation as her body is maxed out and there is no guarantee that chemotherapy would work. 

The doctors advised that she comes home and spend the days left with her loved ones.

Therefore, in tribute to her, we would like to raise funds to create a special memory for her and her family that will hopefully live on forever, that being a celebration of Christmas in July (2021).

The funds received and raised will go towards a catered Christmas event for Tracey, including her family and loved one’s. A professional photographer to capture all of the day’s special moments. A qualified makeup artist to pamper Tracey and make her feel and look special. We will also purchase Christmas-themed groceries and of course a celebration of Christmas would not be complete without presents, to signify the special day. The balance of the money raised will go towards assisting in the paying Tracey’s medical and hospital bills.

Your kind and generous support in helping turn this celebratory event for Tracey and her family into a reality, will be so very much appreciated.
