THE Rushmere Noach team celebrated Easter by donating much-needed books and delicious Easter parcels to the Igazi Foundation Oncology Ward at Provincial Hospital.

“We at Rushmere have been affected by cancer (in various forms) in some way or another and so it is a cause very close to our hearts,” the team said. “Igazi have done amazing work to ensure that patients requiring haematological care in the Eastern Cape are able to receive the treatment locally. As a Port Elizabeth law firm, we are proud to have Igazi based on home soil.”

Easter is a time of joy, a celebration of life and love. For these patients it means a little surprise and happiness and excitement while facing their incredibly big challenge.

Board member and representative for the Igazi Foundation, Zodwa Dube, was delighted with the support, saying: “This is the year of the teenage patient. Most times we forget the teenage patients. They are not children anymore but they are not adults yet.

“It’s harder for them, with hormones and all, to still have to deal with a life-threatening disease as well. They appreciate these random acts of kindness.”

In the spirit of Easter, Rushmere Noach handed out Easter eggs, marshmallows, bunnies and sweet treats to the patients and staff alike of the Aloe Oncology Ward, as well as a donation of books to the paediatric oncology ward library.

“The Igazi Foundation is the only dedicated haematological services NGO in the country and we are proud to be associated with Rushmere Noach who at this time of the year have opened their hearts to the patients who cannot be with their families at this time,” said Cole Cameron, spokesperson for the Igazi Foundation.

“We also invite and encourage the Port Elizabeth community to support the Igazi Foundation, founded in PE,” Rushmere Noach director, Liane Koorsse said.

“They have always done exceptional work and are recognised both nationally and internationally.

“Igazi has made it possible for the local community to receive medical care that was only previously available in other major cities. The passion of the doctors and staff is incredible and truly inspiring. All you need to do is visit the Igazi Aloe or paediatric oncology wards at Provincial Hospital to fully appreciate what this amazing foundation has achieved over the last six years.”
