Look & Feel Good Expo is partnering with the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) by encouraging women to invest in their health by learning how to detect women’s cancers early – including breast cancer which affects one in 29 women each year in South Africa. When you visit the Expo and purchase a ‘Look & Feel Good CANSA Heroes of Hope’ purple ribbon for just R15 at the door, you’ll receive a free ‘Heroes of Hope’ silver charm and R5 off your regularly priced expo entrance fee. The beautiful silver charm is shaped like a ribbon with a purple stone in the centre.
By purchasing the ‘CANSA Heroes of Hope’ ribbon and charm, you are showing support to the many cancer survivors who never gave up, and continue to fight cancer with courage and bravery.
Wear your charm as a necklace, bracelet, handbag accessory or attach it to your key ring, but whatever you do, wear it proudly and visibly, because roaming charm-detector, Franky Feel Good will be giving away spot prizes to people seen wearing their charms at the Look & Feel Good Expo. Look out for Franky Feel Good with his boom-box and video camera, taking spot videos and generally making everyone feel good!
All proceeds from the sale of the ‘CANSA Heroes for Hope’ ribbons at the expo’s, go to CANSA in support of the extraordinary work they do in fighting cancer and also lifting the human spirit, by serving as a beacon of hope to those affected by cancer.
CANSA’s Rachel Wall, Chief Business Development Officer, adds: “We’re immensely gratified to have the support of the Look & Feel Good Expo in raising funds as well as awareness that is our best weapon against cancer. We hope to see a sea of purple ribbons at both expos of visitors who will visibly show their support for this campaign.”
CANSA offers the public and all people affected by cancer a unique integrated service namely research, education and support.
“At our CANSA Care Centres, we provide holistic care and support to cancer survivors from the time of diagnosis through all phases of need, including survivorship. And we provide guidance and advice to cancer survivors and their families to improve their quality of life in all phases of treatment and after” concludes Wall.
