August is Women’s Month in South Africa, and we want to celebrate the wonderful women at CHOC. We are grateful to work with so many caring and dedicated women who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of children and teenagers diagnosed with cancer or life-threatening blood disorders, and their families.
Sadie Cutland – Co-founder of CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa
How appropriate that, in the month dedicated to celebrating women, we get to celebrate the birthday of CHOC’s co-founder, Sadie Cutland, on 12 August.
Sadie’s dedication to bringing hope to children, parents, families and communities through their cancer journey is truly inspirational.
Kerrin Bain – The CHOC Cows
For Kerrin and Grant Bain, losing Jessica (their 20-month-old daughter) to cancer was gut-wrenching. Almost a decade later they heard that their daughter Georgia, had brain cancer. After her brave battle with cancer, Georgia passed away in December 2019.
CHOC has played a significant role in the Bain family’s life, and this journey led them to start The CHOC Cows, fundraising for CHOC.
