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:
