In celebration of the 50th year of the breast cancer support group, Reach for Recovery, an afternoon tea will be held in Uitenhage with Dr Ronel Gowar, a healthcare practitioner with a special interest in breast care.

According to Estelle Botha, chairperson of the Reach for Recovery Uitenhage group, the event promises to be a wonderful afternoon especially to listen to the guest speaker. There will also be light entertainment.

Dr Gowar completed her medical studies at Stellenbosch University and then worked in emergency medicine in Ireland. She returned to South Africa where she then worked in trauma medicine and general practice before she completed her postgraduate training in Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth over a period of six years. She is a plastic surgeon and involved at Port Elizabeth Breast Health.

Unique support system

Reach for Recovery is a breast cancer support organisation with a unique focus on breast cancer support. It is built on a simple yet universal principle: that of one woman who has experienced breast cancer herself giving freely of her time and experience to assist and support another woman with breast cancer.

This service is done at no charge to the patient and is available to any woman who requests it.

The organisation sustains itself through localised fundraising activities, some regular sponsorships that have been associated with Reach for Recovery over a long period and a substantial investment that is carefully guarded.

Time for tea

The afternoon tea will be at 14:30 on Sunday, October 8th at the Moth Hall in Rich Street, Central in Uitenhage.

  • All interested are most welcome to attend. Tickets are R50/person. Anyone who would like to host a table for 10 people are welcome to do so by contacting Estelle Botha on 083 650 6200.
