Brackenhurst Primary Cancer Tea in aid of hospice

She addressed the ladies on the importance of knowledge, imparting that knowledge to the younger generation and to familiarise themselves with ways to decrease risks for cancer such as listening to your body, living a healthier lifestyle and to undergo regular papsmears and mammograms.

Sarah Strydom, a 21-year old cancer survivor, shared her story of being a child diagnosed with cancer and the trials and tribulations she as a young person had to face on her road to recovery.

CEO of hospice, Tersia Burger, thanked the Brackenhurst Primary team and told them that the funds couldn’t have come at a better time as hospice is experiencing an influx of patients with no medical cover, yet in dire need of specialized palliative care.
