We make Care Packs for Breast Cancer Patients

Sometimes ladies from Johannesburg and surrounds, or even further afield, go to Helen Joseph Hospital’s Breast Care Unit for surgery.  They arrive with very little, and stay overnight for their surgery.

To these ladies we say: We Love You.

Our group of friends want to make it a bit easier and comfortable, for the ladies who don’t have much.

We are packing 300 Breast Cancer Care Packs, which we will deliver to Prof Carol Benn’s assistant, Gaby, who will hand them out to every lady who needs a little extra support. Thank you, beautiful Doctor!

Every Packed Pink Parcel will have a gift tag with the patient’s name and a personal message. 

The contents of the parcel are (all in shades of pink!): a  toothbrush and toothpaste, a  face cloth, a  bar of soap, a small pack of tissues, Zambuk, biscuits, a juice box, Wilson’s musk sweets,  wet wipes, body lotion and a chocolate that says “Big Hugs´- because isn’t that what every women wants?

We’ve done our sums and can make up a care pack for just under R100. Amazing sponsorships and packing from Jen, Didi, June, Aeysha, Anna, Donna, Michele, Zelda, Ania, Anna, Anne, Lindsey, Desiree, Kerry & Maderi.

We need your help to make these care packs extra special, please!  When you donate today, we will be able to get to work and hand over 300 care packs before Mandela Day, 18 July 2022. Your parcel will change someone's life and make someone feel loved.

Please donate, spread the word and support us in making someone’s life a little easier. We are very close to our target, and reaching our goal - we can do this, with your help!

Oh, and care to make it interesting?! For every R100 donated, your name will go into a draw for a delicious carrot cake – delivered to your door!

Thank you for your support!
