There are 2 very interesting and amazing women in Cape Town who have started a cancer support group for women named the Steel Magnolias. Catherine and Yolandi have their own stories to tell.
Yolandi who is my wife, was diagnosed with leukaemia 5 years ago and has travelled a long road after having been given less than 90 days to live.
its taught her to live in the present and be grateful for many things, like blood donors who donate blood and platelets. Whilst in ICU and high care for 7 weeks she had no less than 57 transfusions which essentially kept her alive.
Very simply, she is still able to spend time with our 2 daughters who are aged 13 & 16. A motivation to many
