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 Zohra Parkar. Here is her story:
Lockdown has been harder on some than on others. I have spent most of my time looking after my own well-being to ensure that I don’t lose my marbles. When Rene suggested we do Sanlam Marathon, I said yes knowing full-well that I am nowhere near my pre-lockdown fitness level. Why did I say yes? Because after five months of looking mostly after myself I realize, I need to give to others despite where I find myself. So, what if I’ve gained a few extra wobbly bits or that I don’t run as easy as I used to. Running the Sanlam Virtual Marathon is not about getting fit or returning to my pre-lockdown running state. This is about running in the state that I am now to raise funds for women who are worrying about more than not losing their marbles.
