This project was started by Zondelia Lombard-Swartz in 2014 while she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. She sourced toiletries lovingly donated by friends and family, packaged it in pink boxes and bags and distributed it to breast cancer patients at Tygerberg Hospital. In celebrating the 6th year of this project, and in memory of Zonny who lost her fight to breast cancer on 8/09/2019, we would like to call on your support to enable us to extend the distribution of love boxes to include breast cancer patients at both Tygerberg & Paarl Hospitals
This year we’re doing things a bit differently …
In Zonny’s memory:
We will be donating Love Boxes to the breast cancer clinic and wards at Tygerberg Hospital & Paarl Hospital. We are hosting a range of virtual events to raise funds for the Tygerberg Hospital Breast Cancer Clinic & Cancer Ward
Our Ambassador is Liesl Carstens. Here is her story:
I will never forget the day that my uncle, David, visited my mother to say goodbye. I was only 14 years old. He was suffering from brain cancer. Ever since, cancer was a big part of my life as it took the lives of five of my mother’s siblings. My mom battled cancer for eight years – but she overcame. She passed away a year ago – a cancer survivor!
My mom showed me that there is always hope and that cancer can be beaten!
So, on 18 October, I will be running the 10km Peace run, part of the Sanlam Cape Town Virtual Marathon, to celebrate the cancer survivors, to honour those who lost their lives and to stand for hope. Cancer can be beaten!
Together with my tribe we are supporting the Zonny’s Love Box Project 2020. We are raising funds for the Tygerberg Hospital Breast Cancer Clinic and cancer Ward.
Please contribute in any way you can and show your support.
Yours in hope,
