What We Do

Pink Chicks use the personal experience of people affected by cancer to:

  • Provide information, relating to cancer and the treatment thereof, to patients, their family and friends
  • Offer emotional support to patients and their family
  • Where possible, offer practical support to patients and their families
  • On request and where appropriate offer financial assistance to patients

All this is done to ensure that the patient and their family will cope with the disease and its treatment.


How We Work

  • Pink Chicks is a Non-Profit Organization and is funded by sponsorships, donations and fund raising events.
  • Emotional support and sharing information is done
    • Telephonically
    • With home and hospital visits,
    • As well as planned visits to the Oncology Centres.
    • Information is also shared by means of presentations done by some of our members
    • Practical support is provided by connecting the patient to the correct people (oncologists and suppliers) or taking care of certain arrangements, e.g. doctor appointments, accommodation or dealing with medical aids on behalf of the patient.  From time to time, weekend breakaways are also arranged for the patient and their family
    • Where financial assistance for patients is required, a fund raising drive or event will be held.
    • To ensure the on-going operation of Pink Chicks general fund raising events are also held, whether:
      • Piggy backing on charity fundraising opportunities from existing events e.g. Discovery Walk the Talk, Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge & Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour; or
      • Events organized by ourselves.
      • Information and feedback of visits / projects are provided here, on our website.
