October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as a largely female-led team, we wanted to lend our voices and resources to this important drive. We set out to find a partner to help us in raising awareness and funds for an impactful organisation, and found our perfect match in Getwine.co.za. Together, we have banded together this October in support of the life-changing work done by Project Flamingo.
From 1 – 31 October, for every bottle of Mason Road wine sold via Getwine.co.za, Brookdale Estate and Getwine will be donating R10 to Project Flamingo. Our goal is to raise enough money to fund a full day surgery list and support women in South Africa in their fight against Breast Cancer.
ABOUT PROJECT FLAMINGO
Project Flamingo is a not-for-profit organization that sets out to provide timely and holistic treatment, including life-saving Catch-Up surgeries as well as care packs and compassionate support, for breast cancer patients who are dependent on public health care. The patients dependent on the public health care system can experience massive delays in treatment. Every donated Rand makes a difference, and every cent goes to more timely and holistic cancer care.
The Project Flamingo volunteers, which include surgeons, nurses and anaesthetists, make their services and expertise available over weekends/afterhours at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg hospitals in Cape Town, as well as Livingstone hospital in Gqeberha and Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in East London, to patients in need of life-saving breast cancer surgery.
The hard cost of each surgery is approximately R6000 in nursing and consumable fees. Driven by a group of passionate volunteers, Project Flamingo initiatives do not only include these life-saving Catch-Up surgeries, but also caring pamper packs to newly diagnosed cancer patients, food parcels to chemo patients in need, student education, cancer advocacy work and support to the diagnostic breast clinics at the various hospitals where they are active. We love their approach to inclusive healthcare and their deeply held belief that every cancer patient deserves access to timely treatment and heartfelt support, no matter their circumstances. With their simple and profound approach, Project Flamingo has assisted more than 13 000 patients in little over a decade.
