Been a mom is hard, the normal everyday items should not be something added to the shoulders of the mom’s who child is in the hospital I work at.
So when Kim, Recycled Inc manager and hospital dietician, told me about the little cancer patients who were without yoghurt, custard and jelly, I could not sit back, work and then go home to feed my kiddies whatever they felt like.
I contacted a dear friend who runs M.A.D (Make A Difference). Christie was only happy to help out. With the donations of yoghurt, custard and jelly we received from M.A.D, we have been able to supply the cancer pediatric, adult and a few other wards with simple supplies for the last three weeks.
Here are a few pictures of the faces that had smiles on after they received their yoghurt. There where a number of patients who we did not photograph due to chemo, facial deformities or other sensitive exposures. On behalf of those patients, we say a HUGE thank you to Christie and all who donated to the drive. Every bit helps brighten the days of these patients.
I printed a selection of photographs and gave them to the patients, I wish you could have seen the smiles we got, missing teeth and all!
