KLOOF residents Jill Wright and Elsje Miller have lost nine loved ones between them, and when they read about the Satin Candy tattoo initiative for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the Fever they jumped at the opportunity.

This initiative saw Satin Candy joining up with the Jolly Roger Ink Asylum to encourage the community to get a pink ribbon tattoo to remember or support a loved one with breast cancer.

In addition, the community was encouraged to pledge their support for the many courageous people who are battling breast cancer.

According to the duo, they were also the oldest customers to be tattooed by Jolly Roger Ink Asylum in October, however, they know their tattoo is done for a remarkable cause.

Satin Candy owner Sandra Thomas said this innovative idea was a tribute to the many people she deals with through her business.

“The reason we did this is simple – we are remembering those who have died and support those who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

“We also celebrated survivors because this is all about prevention and making sure there is a good ending to a difficult journey,” she added.

“We wanted to get involved and help to raise funds for the Cancer Association and were thrilled to be an integral part of this campaign,” said Rex of Jolly Roger Ink Asylum.
