When 18 month old Keagan was diagnosed with cancer in June 2009, his parents were told to prepare for the worst and that he most likely won’t celebrate his 2nd Birthday in October. But this little warrior proved everyone wrong and celebrated his 6th Birthday in 2013 at Rio Sol Portuguese Restaurant.
This birthday party is very special to me as Keagan was the very first beneficiary of Rio Sol’s Charity Fundraiser (now Cupcakes of HOPE) in 2009. That year, R5 000 was raised and the money was used for a special car seat for Keagan, as well as special mattresses for his bed and pram.
So special to see this little warrior doing so well.
Kegan turned 8 recently and we were able to celebrate with him at Rio Sol again!
Kegan’s story is a STORY OF HOPE – and I hope that he will be a motivation to EVERYONE that CANCER CAN BE BEATEN! Kegan, we are so proud of you and you have such a special place in my heart! May God continue to bless you and your family… Thank you to everyone involved in making this day so special for Kegan. Michelle, THANK YOU for the STUNNING Cake and Cupcakes, it was a hit!

Our Cupcake Angel in Cape-Town, Elri, went to visit a special warrior, Reece for his 1st Birthday in 2014. She took presents and cupcakes for him and his parents.
We got a special request from a mommy at Donald Gordon to surprise Isabel and her family. Isabel, who is battling Leukaemia, turned 3 in February 2014 and was receiving treatment at the time. We arrived with Dora cupcakes, much to her mommy’s surprise.
“How did you know? And how much do I owe you?” So we explained what we do and how we help and the tears just streamed down her face.
We came across Carla in the Local Get-it Magazine where she told her story. She had to receive chemotherapy on her birthday in 2014 and so our Cupcake Angel from Pretoria, Angelique, went and surprised Carla. We also organised a VERY special guest to come and visit and Bok van Blerk made Carla’s dream come true!
