This morning on Mansfield in the Morning, Hot Cares got to experience the spirit of tenacity, community and love that, in truth, keeps the world turning.
Jeanine Du Toit contacted Hot Cares on behalf of her friend Miemie, being a member of The Chemo Buddies herself. This group of ladies receive chemo every Wednesday at the Westrand Oncology Centre, have become more than friends, more than family, as they share all the good and bad times. Jeanine met Miemie in 2018[, at which time Miemie had already been diagnosed terminal.
But ever positive, and full of jokes, Miemie never allowed spirits to remain low for very long, no matter what.
Two weeks ago, Miemie was given 6 months to live as the chemo has done nothing to stop the cancer.
Jeanine contacted Hot Cares to do something for Miemie, as The Chemo Buddies refuse to let anything dampen their spirits. Chicago -The Musical is one of Miemie’s favourite shows and Jeanine had hope to take the Chemo Buddies out on the town. Beside the high cost of the tickets, another problem is that Miemie cares for her ailing 96-year-old mother who can’t be left alone at night.
Hot Cares decided that when it comes to the Chemo Buddies we’d make sure their evening is nothing but “razzle dazzle”. Not only will we get a certified night nurse for to care for Miemie’s mum on the evening, the ladies will be treated to chauffeur service to and from Montecasino, pre-show dinner and Chicago the Musical VIP evening – and all that jazz!
