The 17th annual CANSA Shavathon took place on Saturday in shopping centres countrywide. Our very own Whale Coast Mall was one of the shopping centres to participate and gave CANSA their full support for the event.

CANSA’s theme for the Shavathons this year was ‘Hope 2020’ which was apt as participants showed their solidarity and gave hope to cancer survivors and their loved ones by stencilling, spraying, shaving or donating their hair. Adults who decided to show their support by having their hair done made a R50 donation and children U12, R25. All funds received went straight to CANSA’s care and support programmes for parents, caregivers and loved ones.

Pictured above are Maryna from CANSA (left) who is spraying five-year-old Alyssa’s hair. With them are volunteers Heli (back row, in pink) and Klokkies (right in yellow vest) and brothers Heinrich (middle) and Christiaan (right).
