Children get cancer too

2020 was an extremely difficult year for everyone but more so for Candice and Dan Kriel (Lions Rugby player) along with their two beautiful children (Summer and Cruz).  Candice was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2020

Being young and healthy a lot of fear and uncertainty was felt amongst their family when they received the news.  Candice endured chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and radiation.

They never gave up hope and their family played a huge role throughout this period, as well as their friends and doctors.

“During my time of treatment, I was shocked and surprised by the number of young people and children I saw receiving treatment for cancer. The most difficult and saddening part was seeing and reading stories of what these cancer patients were going through – physically and emotionally.

From seeing how many other people worldwide were in a similar position and fighting Cancer like I was, almost gave me a calling to try and make a difference, and how special it would be to see a child’s face light up with joy when they received a gift.“

Amidst the pain Happy Bundles can witness a precious and priceless moment of seeing parents and grandparents light up, when the faces of their little ones beam with joy and excitement at receiving a gift.

Happy Bundles a non-profit organisation that can bring a life changing moment of joy to these children with Cancer.

This is the reason we call to you, to have compassion and support us in making a difference.  To give back what Cancer has taken away from these precious children.
So, from us as a family at Happy Bundles we ask you to help and donate. To give these children a reason to smile and a reason to feel special as every child deserves to.
