The countdown to the 10th Shavathon has started with a Mini-Shavathon
CANSA started the countdown to the 10th Shavathon, by hosting a mini-Shavathon recently. Special guests included 13-year old student Matthew Moffet, a high functioning autistic, who had been growing his hair for a year in order to shave and show his support for cancer survivors. It was shaved by CANSA CEO and cancer survivor, Sue Janse van Rensburg.
Also showing support is Sizwe Lawrence Ndlovu, 2012 Olympic Rowing Gold medallist whose mother passed away from cancer. “I’m taking part in Shavathon to honour my mother who was a pillar of strength to me. I want to ensure that others, especially other mothers become aware of cancer and assist and show their support”, he explained.
