SEVEN lists…THIRTY SEVEN lives!

It is only June and we have already changed 37 lives with our catch-up surgeries. The Flamingo team and our wonderful volunteer surgeons and anesthetists have done amazing work over the last 3 months – squeezing in no less than 7 catch-up surgery lists. In the process, 37 breast and colorectal cancer patients was offered more timely treatment.

We are fired up and excited to continue this service at Groote Schuur with at least another 7 lists over the next few months. Thank you so much to our loyal supporters and sponsors…none of this would be possible without you.The big dream off course: to spread our wings and offer our help to patients beyond the borders of Cape Town…
