2016-10-27 06:00

IN support of PINKtober and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Blue Marlin Hotel in Scottburgh hosted the highly sought-after Dance of The Butterfly event on Saturday in conjunction with The Forever Changed Global Awareness Campaign.

Celebrities included Kevin Ellis aka The Style Guru, with a combination of local and international VIPs and members of the press.

Also in attendance was MP and from the Judicial Services Commission, Narend Singh.

Blue Marlin’s entertainment-events manager, Lana Lauderdale explained that these events have already been hosted by ambassadors countrywide, with the premiere launch in Hollywood in March and in Israel next month.

Lauderdale said that these are the only official events that are licensed to screen the Forever Changed documentary globally, which is produced and directed by The African Motion Picture Company.

“After the successful exclusive screening, we are now promoting the Blue Marlin Hotel’s public Dance of The Butterfly event on Sunday, 27 November, which includes a cheese and wine party and tickets are now on sale at R150 per person. Not only will audiences be empowering themselves, they will also be entertained by well-known performers, including a fashion show, and will be donating proceeds to Khanya Hospice and the 21-year-old Durban warrior Tashnika Rambali, who is undergoing a bone marrow transplant,” said Lauderdale

Keynote speaker, breast cancer warrior Addi Lang outlined why she started the campaign, which is to inspire others to understand their health rights and take charge of the decisions and choices they make.

Lang paid tribute to fallen warrior - well known South African actor Jannes Eiselen, also in the Forever Changed documentary, who has just died.

Lang wears her version of a pink ribbon proudly as she has made a valued contribution to society, which opens a much needed forum for discussion for health enthusiasts, care givers and warriors.

This roadmap is something she believes, had she been introduced to, would have changed the course of her life and the choices tshe made at the time of her diagnosis.
