Being an organisation that works within a large community we have had a number of cancer patients which has broadened our perspective of the condition and the way in which we all view it. Cancer has taken the lives of many over the years but many have conquered it.
Cancer does not shape love, hope, humility, joy, peace or even suppress memories, Cancer is so limited because it cannot silence our courage, invade our soul or steal our eternal life, and that’s why we at Ladies of Hope (member hospice to the Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa) do the best that we can in making our patients comfortable adding Hope to their everyday life if not with a massage maybe with a chat about life and how wonderful it really is, as our vision states we aim to “ Provide Holistic Care” for all our patients and seeing them happy is the best part of our everyday life.
Ladies of Hope has sadly lost 14 patients to Cancer.
Alongside the Methodist Church and the Community, Ladies of Hope has come together with our amazing team to organize a Prayer Day that was held on Sunday 28th of October 2018. The event is to celebrate the survivors and to remember the ones we lost to this illness.
A well-known quote by John Bunya that teaches us to care for each other without expecting to be repaid because that’s the beauty of life to live to do something for someone or help someone that is unequipped to help themselves keeping the key principle in mind that we do not help so we can be helped in return but we help so we can be able to touch a life by helping to make a difference.
