Welcome to PROJECT FLAMINGO!
A rich mixture of passionate people serendipitously collided, when a group of paddling breast cancer survivors reached out to a young doctor who desperately wanted to change the journey of breast cancer patients in Cape Town’s public health sector.
We started small but always dreamed big – from visiting patients with our pamper packs to reminding them of their feminine spirit that no surgery can take away, to raising funds for our “Catch–up Surgeries” at Groote Schuur Hospital – reducing the waiting time for a lifesaving mastectomy from 3 months to a mere 2 weeks.
We take note of the lessons the big C has taught us.
We embrace the idea that we have the responsibility and capacity to make a difference.
You can too.
