We are so grateful for the support that all of you have given us this year, in order for us to support the 4 cancer patients and/or the families we assist under the Sponsor a Cancer Patient Campaign. With donations raised this year from individual donors; the Carlton United Breweries Punters’ Club; those who participated in the global #FitChicks #ECCTFitChallenge; various races including the Econet Victoria Falls Marathon; the Age Run Melbourne, Fitness To a Tee online programs for those based in Zimbabwe and the Fitness To a Tee Flat Tummy Class – we were able to continuously provide the patients and their families with food, medical costs and school fees for their children.

As we always do when we visit the patients each month, we show you as many images of their progress as we can, so that you can see where your assistance has gone to, and the lives that it has touched beyond measure. August 9th 2015 was no different. A group of volunteers, including ECCT Founder Teurai Chanakira went to deliver food hampers to the patients and their families in their homes in Hatcliffe and to check on them.

Please see images below of the day.

During ECCT visit to one of the homes where mum Rejoice is affected by cancer. This was one of the moments that affected us the most. Thank you to Ruvimbo Goredema (with hat) for the softest words spoken to this young girl Marcia whose school fees we provide – about coping with mum’s cancer.

Giving food hampers.

Love is amazing. When you do things from a place of love, something has to give in the end to bring a positive result, no matter how hard it is to get to that result. Even pain can be turned into a message of love + hope. Thank you to all those who enable us to do the work through donations, words of encouragement + support, those who are involved with fundraising activities worldwide + those who help the ‘behind the scenes’ strategy occur.
