World cancer day was celebrated at Tygerberg Breast Clinic with an Open day function organized by Dr. Jenny Edge. The idea was to introduce all the role-players to the staff of Tygerberg Hospital and the role each organization had in the successful functioning of the breast clinic.
Attending the function were Volunteers from Reach for Recovery Tygerberg, Cape Peninsula and Paarl branches. Volunteers handed out packets containing water, a fruit, a pink ribbon and pamphlets to patients waiting in the mamma clinic. There was also a tree with crochet ribbons that patients could take free of charge.
Cora and Carla, Chairladies of Tygerberg and Cape Peninsula respectively, gave information about the role of Reach for Recovery in the hospital and patients’ lives as well as information about the training of the Volunteers.
