    I have been invited to a CANSA relay last year or earlier this year at Hottentots Holland High school. I have just lost my sister in law who was diagnosed with stage4 cancer when she got ill on her 50th birthday. She is survived by her 2 children age 28 and 18. The 3 of us went and did not know what to expect. It was a very emotional moment for us and also a kind of closure but also confusing time for us. She did not even had the change to be a survivor.

    We decided that we will also this time have a tent and will do this event every year if God allows. I have contacted my friends and family when I heard that an event will take place on 12 and 13th October and they contacted their friends and family. with this chain we reached quite a few that wants to partake in this years event that we need to have a team of our own.

    I am so glad that I could be a small part to spread cancer awareness and also could reach out to friends and family which has lost adear one to cancer ad also for a few survivors to come on board. Some of them were a little shy or afraid to partake but God willing they also want to participate.

    Once again thank you to CANSA for their hard and dedicated work. I salute you.

    God Bless
