Andrea Recieves Special Donation
|25 November 2016|
Pink Phoenix Cancer Foundation was overjoyed to inform Andrea that in addition to being a registered beneficiary on the "Kids 4 Life" Funding Program, she would now be attending blind school with a full sponsorship received from a donor, for her 2017 year!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible for this incredible and intelligent child. Andrea lost her sight due to radiation damage during her treatment after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the nasal passage.
She rose to the challenge of teaching herself Braille and earned herself an acceptance to the blind school but the additional costs were too much for her parents to carry on a single income from her Mom, Geraldine, after her father, Kuben had been retrenched during her treatment.
Andrea took the initiative and was asking each family member for R50 to afford her schooling but this will no longer be necessary because of the generosity of this good Samaritan.
Andrea's dream is to write and publish children's stories in Braille for the benefit of other blind children.
We have no doubt that this determined young lady will achieve her goals as no challenge is too big for her.
