Sandra Strydom and Lydia Balepille from our West Rand Reach for Recovery Group recently introduced Reach for Recovery at a workshop hosted by the Thusang Morwalo Advice Centre.  Our two volunteers shared the platform with organisations such as KAGISO, FAMSA, PROBONO.RGA and AKASAU.  After Sandra introduced the services that Reach for Recovery offers to breast cancer patients and their families, Lydia Balepille share her story of surviving breast cancer with the audience.  They were delighted by the response from the audience who asked many questions about breast cancer, treatment, etc.   Reach for Recovery is looking forward to organise a Breast Cancer Awareness event at the centre in the near future.
