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 Luzalle van Niekerk. Here is her story:
2020, You were supposed to be the best year, but you started with great sadness.
Waking up on the 1st of January we thought it would be the best day ever, but as it turned out my friend Carmen had lost her mother due to cancer, but the sadness did not end on that day.
16 days later I lost one of my special friends Lance who has been battling with this dreadful disease for a long time.
A week later cancer popped up again, first my husband’s mom then my dad, but through all the sadness with this horrible disease, God has been good all the time.
I will be running the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon 21km on the 18th of October for all my loved one’s who have lost their lives and especially for my mother-in law and my dad who is still battling with cancer.
I will also dedicate this race to the breast cancer unit at Tygerberg hospital by raising funds, please support me and together we can make a difference.
Thank you with all my heart. ❤️
