Please help us raise the money needed for our very special friend, Taryn Roper Kneen, to get the treatment and assistance she needs to beat her Stage 4 breast cancer.
Some of you might know her, others may have met her at my wedding (Cape Town peeps!), and others may have heard me talk about her. She lives in Cape St Francis and is going through her chemo treatments, still needs a masectomy and reconstruction, then radiation….she is super positive and so so brave, but financially they are seriously struggling. She has such amazing friends all around the world and together we are trying to raise the funds for her.
See the attached poster for more information and (such a divine!) photo of Taryn – there are awesome prizes to be won and the draws take place end of August and end of September.
If you would like to buy a ticket please email me (I am the St Francis contact person but can also take donations from my CT friends!) or sms/whatsapp me on 076 5108383.
Please do forward this onto anyone you think could help (I’m afraid I don’t really have everyone’s email addresses esp in St Francis).
Thanks a mil!!!
