Mother’s Day 2018

Being a Mom is probably the biggest blessing in the world but being a Onco Mom is something that most of us will never experience but a true test to motherhood, but in our experience Onco Mom’s have super powers that not even they knew they had. 

This year we asked our for Cupcake Angel’s to assist us in making Mother’s Day special for our Onco Mom’s, although their kiddo’s are in hospital they still want their mom’s to feel special.  We asked our Cupcake Angels to assist us in making Mother’s Day special by donating hand cream, nail polish, biscuits and mugs. 

Blessed beyond measure and as we started collecting donated gifts it was evident that so much time and love was put into each donation, it’s with the support of our amazing network that Mother’s Day was special …. THANK YOU CUPCAKE ANGEL’S our Onco Mom’s felt special and loved their special spoil.

Nurses’ Day 2018

Nursing is by far not for sissies, but being an Onco Nurse is a true calling and a job that only a selected few can take on.  From our small glimpse into their world, they take on a massive responsibility and give the best care to many Warrior’s.  They are part of a very important journey and face daily challenges that many of us think is impossible, they love as we do, they feel loss as we do, but every morning they get up and do it all over again.  Yes the loss is hard yet there are many happy endings and that gives them so much purpose.

This year Nurse’s Day was on the 12th of May and in conjunction with our Mother’s Day visit we thought they deserved a spoil too.  With the assistance of GlitzyGlam we arranged lip balm and gloss for each nurse, although something small it was just a little gesture to say thank you for everything that they do!

A big thank you to our Onco Nurses and  for treating warriors as their own, always with a smile and for taking on such a special calling.

Easter 2018

Last week Cupcake Angels spent the morning visiting Charlotte Maxeke and Donald Gordan Hospitals, it was time to spread some cupcake blessings over the Easter Holidays.  It is always such a treat for the Warrior’s to do activity … a welcomed break from their reality!  A big thank you to the staff at both hospitals who always make us feel welcome! 

 

Of course, none of this is possible without to our Cupcake Angel’s who continuously support us through the year …. THANK YOU!  We hope that you had a wonderful Easter.

International Childhood Cancer Day 2018

Celebrating International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (15 February 2018) was a massive success this February with 43 registered parties of hope. Cupcake Angel’s around the country supported the #81partiesofhope campaign.

 

Why 81 you ask? Well … in 2017 we sadly received 81 new Warrior registrations. 81 more families faced with not only a financial burden but also the fear of facing childhood cancer.

 

Together as a team Cupcake Angel’s worked hard and had loads of fun in creating an awareness on the Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer and raising funds to support our new families and continue to support our previously registered families.

 

The parties of Hope was a tribute to all our Warriors that in times of darkness Cupcake Angels acknowledge and recognize our brave Warrior’s!!

 

Thank you Cupcake Angels, without your support we wouldn’t be able to continue to bless our BRAVE WARRIORS!

Christmas Greetings

This week has been an absolute priceless week with the Cupcake Angel’s hosting two Christmas Parties for our amazing little Warrior’s in Johannesburg

 

We started with a bang on Sunday with hosting 250 people at the Johannesburg Theatre, and watched Pinocchio – an absolutely amazing performance, which catered for young and old.  To see these little faces, most of which have never been to the theatre was the highlight of my day. We then proceeded to the penthouse and with our Warrior’s shouting for Santa they were spoilt with all the gifts that were bought with so much thought and love.  The warriors and families got to meet Lucinda, our Brand Ambassador, and the title holder of Mrs Global United, thank you for providing all the yummy cupcakes.  Between Rochelle, Bianca and myself we received so many messages of thanks that all the time and effort in putting the day together was absolutely perfect.

 

The Joburg theatre were more than accommodating and they went out their way to not only give us complimentary tickets but to also deal with all our requests and changes!

 

Last night we were off to the Garden of Lights with some of our newer families, and all I can say is WOW.  Clive, Nileen and team from the Emperor’s hotel went beyond the call of duty, with an amazing Santa, Elf, dinner, Christmas stockings, access to the Garden of lights and finally unlimited play time in the theme park.  It was so special to be able to spend some quality time with Warrior’s and families!  Thank you to Dawn, Team Potgieter and Mikayla for being part of the magic

 

When putting any event together it takes time, love and dedication to ensure a memorable and priceless event for our very special Warrior’s.  But none of this would be possible without all of our Cupcake Angel’s THANK YOU to each and every one of you that played a very important role in making CHRISTMAS SPECIAL for our WARRIORS.

 

This year we were absolutely blessed with a Cupcake Angel that sacrifices so much of herself for our Warriors, Carol-Anne was our very own Mrs Clause.  Annie, you arranged the theatre, you arranged the Garden of Lights – you dealt with all my requests and changes and did it with a smile, thank you for being YOU, thank you to your family for sharing you with us and for always putting our Warrior’s on the top of the priority list.

 

There is absolutely no amount of words that can express our gratitude to all our Cupcake Angel’s, we are truly blessed with the best.

 

Sending loads of love, an amazing Christmas and a New Year filled with all the love and blessings you and your family deserve!

 

Sandy, Michelle & Rochelle
