THE Fever staff visited Choc Childhood Cancer Foundation to give their 67 minutes for Mandela Day on Friday.

The staff arrived with goodies for the children which included colouring-in books, crayons, toiletries as well as party packs, sponsored by Perfect Parties (Taryn Watson).

There were smiles all round as volunteers took the Fever the staff on a tour of the Choc Lodge (the home where moms and children are housed).

Choc was established in 1979 as a support group to parents of children with cancer, by parents of children with cancer.

Having experienced the immense emotional and financial toll that cancer takes they recognised there is more than one victim in the family of a child with cancer.

Their aim is to ease the burden on parents facing the same journey by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.

The organisation does not receive funding from government, but relies on donations from caring corporates, individuals and parents of children with cancer. Funds raised are used to provide all-encompassing support, from direct practical help to the children and their families and those involved in the treatment, to necessary equipment.

For details, or to donate contact, Agie Govender, Choc KZN regional manager on 086 111 2182.
