In 2020 I will be swimming the 8 Mile and raising funds for CANSA.
I chose this Charity as I know a handful of family and friends that have lost the battle to cancer and some who are still fighting or have won, as well as knowing many friends who have fathers, mothers, relatives and friends who are also fighting or have lost. It is the charity that resonated the most with me and is a very real and scary reality for people. The numbers ARE rising daily.
CANSA stands for Cancer Association of South Africa, they are the leaders in cancer research since 1931. Their purpose is to offer a unique, integrated service to the public and all affected by cancer.
RESEARCH, EDUCATE, SUPPORT.
CANSA's mission is to be the preferred non-profit leader that enables research with regards to lowering cancer risk, educating the public regarding symptoms, screening and risk education, and providing care and support to all people affected by cancer.
Family and friends, please support me on this journey and share with your loved ones, lets raise the funds needed for a good cause and get me into that dam for an 8 mile swim!
