Thank you to everyone who attended the World Cancer Day event, at Maruapula School. From the courageous Survivor and Caregiver who shared their stories, to the visionary speakers who shared their hopes and plans for changing the local cancer narrative, and the talented Maru-a-pula learners who kept us entertained (and informed)...le kamoso.
Save the Date. We will be commemorating World Cancer Day on Sat 03 February, and you are invited.#WorldCancerCay #WCD2018 #weCanICan
We are pleased to introduce one tough cookie, who is getting ready to (literally) get down and dirty to fundraise for Journey of Hope Botswana.
Gaborone-based Candice Muir will be taking part in the 5km Muddy Princess Obstacle race, to be held in Johannesburg in March 2018. This mother, sister, friend and person with a disability wants to show that with courage and support, we can overcome many obstacles in life.
To help her beat her P5000.00 target, you can support Candice, by pledging your donation and encouraging her as she gets ready for the challenge.
*EDIT: We have had enquiries about where to donate for our Muddy Princess entrant, Candice. Let's help her beat her P5000.00 target!

Every year on 04 February, the world unites to commemorate World Cancer Day. Once again, this year, we will be joining forces with other local 'fighters' to remember those who lost the fight, to empathize with those still fighting, and to celebrate those who have fought and won against different types of cancer.
Visit www.worldcancerday.org for more details, and we will also provide updates about where and how it will be commemorated locally.
