Cindy is a breast cancer survivor who underwent a bilateral mastectomy and cancer treatment. Her cancer was caught early and she is in remission mostly due to her faith and the fact that she had access to the correct medical treatment.
The sad reality is that there are too many women who do not have the financial means or access to cancer health services to detect cancer early on and have a better chance at survival. Being a breast cancer survivor, Cindy became an ambassador for PinkDrive, South Africa’s Breast Cancer Community Carer, who powers South Africa’s first and only mobile Women’s Health Mammography and Gynaecology Units.
Now, Cindy is giving back and wanting to raise money for PinkDrive for a new mobile mammography unit and to educate women in Africa about breast cancer, by becoming the first breast cancer survivor to cycle the Tour d’ Afrique cycle race ( – 12,000kms from Cairo to Cape Town, on a bicycle called Milkshake.
Hot Cares will be donating R5,000.00 towards Cindy’s journey, if you would like to get involved, you can get in touch with Cindy by visiting her website:

Hot Cares - Healing Wings

Healing Wings has been working with the Mankele Trust Community for many years now, every Christmas they host an all-day family event for members of the community. They provide a meal and fun activities like a game of soccer or horse rides; they also use this event to put together and distribute parcels to over 130 children. Similar to a “Santa’s Shoebox”.

Gogo's Birthday

At nearly 100 years old, Gogo is still so curious about life and is especially interested in aeroplanes and how they work; but she’s never had the opportunity to travel in one. With her 100th birthday on the 8th of October, Hot Cares decided to send Robinah and her Gogo on a trip of a lifetime!


Charmaine contacted Hot Cares with a request for her amazing, resilient sister, Juanita who has had a rough go of it lately. Both Juanita and Charmaine lost their mother in 2017, but in the following year Juanita was also faced with her ending of her 25-year-long marriage.
While Juanita is picking up the pieces, Charmaine has taken it upon herself to cheer her sister up for her birthday in October and bought tickets to Prime Fest for Juanita to see her favourite bands Prime Circle and the Parlotones.
To make her day extra special, Hot Cares will be giving Juanita an additional 4 VIP tickets including backstage passes and so she can meet and greet the guys!


Neville Pillay is a former East Coast Radio and Lotus FM presenter and comedian who recently suffered a heart attack and mild stroke.

Unfortunately, Neville does not have medical aid and requires urgent dialysis treatment.

In order to ease the burden on Neville and his family, Hot Cares will cover medical aid contributions for one year to the value of R50 000.

Jeremy Mansfield and Sam Cowen from Mansfield in the Morning spoke to Neville's wife, Carol, on Monday


The Mansfield in the Morning team thank all the listeners and sponsors for their generous donations towards the build "A School for Madiba" project.

They recap on what's still outstanding and ask the listeners if they still would like to join the project to please make a donation towards this initiative.


The Mansfield In The Morning team spoke to Madelein Oosthuizen whose young family has experienced a traumatic loss recently and Hot Cares wanted to bring some sunshine back into their lives.


Sandra wrote in to Hot Cares on behalf of her brother Gavin. At 56 years old, Gavin has been through the emotional and physical of battling cancer, (which was first detected as prostate cancer but then rapidly spread to his skeletal system) and has finally hit that inconceivable wall.
Gavin’s doctors have told him that the chemo is no longer working, and the cancer is progressing beyond their ability to cope with.
From being a fit, sport-loving man to being wheelchair bound and unable to do things for himself, Sandra asked Hot Cares to assist making a dream come true for Gavin. It being that Reach for Dream only makes dreams come true for terminal children under the age of 18, Hot Cares decided to step to make this particular wish come true. All Gavin wants is to watch a Springbok game live. Simple enough and thankfully, totally doable! We’ve invited Gavin and his wife to join us for the test match against Australia on the 20th of July at Emirates Airline Park. Go Bokke!


Last winter, Hot Cares lent some Hot Cares help to the Have a Heart Foundation by replacing all the windows in their building which had been smashed in, making the shelter vulnerable to the cold.
Since then, they’ve had to move premises (for the better) and have now partnered with Wings of Inspiration – a great organisation that does a lot in the community – to renovate and retrofit the warehouse space they’ve found to make it fit for use as an old age home.
To help them get settled and make the place homely, Hot Cares has purchased 24 beds and mattresses. Thank you to Mattress Factory who’ve donated pillows for each bed. And in the heartwarming spirit of Ubuntu, a Hot 91.9 FM listener called in to donate her old kitchen to this very worthy cause.

Hot Cares – Making A Meaningful Difference in the Lives of Those Around Us.


Phezile Koekoe reached out to Hot Cares to tell us about the Health and Wellness Mission Project she spearheads in Diepsloot.
Every Thursday morning, a group of 45 people who are openly living with HIV and Aids who come together for mutual support group, skills development, spiritual support, health talk and food security.
As they encourage each other, there’s also a time of spiritual input through bible study, motivation and prayer. At the end they get food donations from Woolworths. Although, it’s not enough, it usually only lasts for a day or two and on other days, the people have to search around for decent food to take their medication.
They’re always in need of non-perishable foods, volunteers for trauma counselling and health talks, sanitary pads, as well as clothes and blankets.
To contribute towards the incredible work they are doing to educate, inform and encourage people in their community, Hot Cares has purchased grocery and toiletry items to the value of R7000 to assist.

HOT CARES - Miemie Paints The Town! - 23 04 19

This morning on Mansfield in the Morning, Hot Cares got to experience the spirit of tenacity, community and love that, in truth, keeps the world turning.

Jeanine Du Toit contacted Hot Cares on behalf of her friend Miemie, being a member of The Chemo Buddies herself. This group of ladies receive chemo every Wednesday at the Westrand Oncology Centre, have become more than friends, more than family, as they share all the good and bad times. Jeanine met Miemie in 2018, at which time Miemie had already been diagnosed terminal.
But ever positive, and full of jokes, Miemie never allowed spirits to remain low for very long, no matter what.

Two weeks ago, Miemie was given 6 months to live as the chemo has done nothing to stop the cancer.
