Spreading our wings: Project Flamingo arrives at Tygerberg

On Saturday 12 November Project Flamingo sponsored our very first catch-up surgery list for seven breast cancer patients at Tygerberg hospital. Patients dependent on Tygerberg for their cancer surgeries are currently waiting 3 months from diagnosis to operation…5 years ago we faced a similar situation at Groote Schuur hospital – we know the feeling of being utterly overwhelmed and frustrated, too well! And that is why Project Flamingo was born…we are so grateful that we are finally in the position to spread our wings and duplicate the model that dramatically improved the surgical waiting time at Groote Schuur at other institutions too! Thank you so much to a stellar team of surgeons, anesthetists and nurses at Tygerberg – we cannot wait to continue our journey together. We are committed to at least 7 more lists over the next few months at Tygerberg and believe that this will make a demonstrable difference in the treatment of breast cancer patients in Cape Town.
