THE importance of early detection of cancer cannot be over-emphasised and this is the basis of the and#034;Pink Driveand#034; to be held in Greytown on 7 November with the theme “education, examination and awareness” emphasising breast, testicular and prostate cancers.

Hosted by the Super Body Club of Greytown and cancer survivors, the event will be held in King Edward Park. Awareness events have been held over the past few years, but this year is going to be big to spread the message and educate as many people as possible.

An appeal has been made to local businesses to sponsor this event to enable a mobile unit to be present to conduct screening tests free. Cancer is not a death threat if detected early, but in rural areas like Umvoti it is not easy for people to have regular screenings. This is why this appeal is being made and there has already been a positive response from local businesses. All proceeds are donated to Cansa.

There will be a lot of action during the day, including jumping castle, choirs, action bikes, food stalls, the Cansa cupcake stall which at last yearand#039;s evening talk raised several thousand rand, Cansa merchandise, and lots more.

Anyone who would like a stall at this big event at King Edward Park must contact Zeenah Ally on 081 858 67240. Stalls are R100.

Any business or individual who would like to donate to this worthy cause to help save lives is asked to contact Zeenah or other members of the fund-raising committee - Theresa Edwards on 060 505 7635), Michelle Redinger on 072 383 2204 or Lee Megan Larkan on 072 491 2712
