Friday 2 March 2018, Wynberg Boys' High School: Wynberg brothers, Dylan and Ethan Wasserfall, are gearing up their fundraising efforts for St Luke's Hospice during the 2018 Cape Town Cycle Tour on Sunday 11 March. We wholeheartedly support the service initiatives of our Wynberg Men, and take pleasure in sharing the email we received from Zani Lamb, Head of Operations at St Luke's:
Brothers, Dylan Wasserfall (17) and Ethan Wasserfall (14), both students at Wynberg Boys' High School, will be cycling to make a difference for patients being cared for by St Luke’s Combined Hospices. Dylan and Ethan know first-hand about the work done by St Luke's through their mother who works here. From hearing their mom’s stories, and while helping with office clean up during the December holidays, they gained insight into the challenges families face when coming to St Luke’s.
By raising funds the brothers want to help ensure St Luke’s continues providing quality palliative care through assessing the physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of more than 900 patients. The brothers were especially touched by the life of Craig Brown, the son of one of their mom’s colleagues who passed away from cancer when he was 13 years old. The book written by Sue Brown about her son’s journey, ‘The Twinkling of an Eye’ gave the brothers a renewed sense of purpose to again cycle for St Luke’s Hospice.
As Ethan put’s it ‘cancer doesn’t ask your age’. Their campaign is titled ‘Brothers Doing it for Hospice’ - you can follow their progress on their Facebook page and support their efforts through their Back-a-Buddy campaign. We applaud Wynberg Boys' High School for cultivating young men with such social conscience and drive. Take care
