Project Flamingo strive to conduct Timely surgery for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. This is currently achieved by funded catch-up surgery lists performed at Groote Schuur Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town (paying for theatre time and nursing staff.) This is to compensate for the tremendous strain on theatre and staff resources that have led to a waiting time of up to 12 weeks for surgery in 2010.
Thanks to Project Flamingo, the waiting time for surgery at both hospitals has been reduced substantially.
Compassionhat is proud to donate sleep caps which the Project Flamingo volunteers distribute to ladies in the cancer wards at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg hospitals to women facing hair loss and who can not afford to buy a Compassionhat for themselves.
You can get involved by purchasing an extra hat or hats here. Hats purchased for Project Flamingo will be sent straight to them. Scroll down to add the item to your cart.
