On Saturday 27 October, Creation Wines hosted a special Pink Tasting in honour and support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – the full cost of the ticket was donated to the non-profit organization, Reach for Recovery, for their Ditto Project.
Doctor Justus Apffelstaedt, a specialist Breast Cancer surgeon and former Head of the Head, Neck and Breast Cancer Unit at Tygerberg Hospital, was the guest speaker who spoke about the correlation between the downscaling of Breast Cancer therapy and preservation of quality of life. Doctor Apffelstaedt is an avid supporter of Reach for Recovery 2018 and has been supporting the initiative since March 2018 by offering talks at numerous corporate social functions and donating his full speaker fee to the cause.
Launched in 2011, The Ditto Project has provided a total of 5,024 silicone prostheses costing more than R3,1 million to women who could not afford one. “Reach for Recovery and I share the same belief: that all women should have the same access to care, regardless of whether they can afford it,” says Dr Apffelstaedt.
R4 300 was raised from the event and donated to Reach for Recovery.
