As most of our beloved customers know by now, during the month of October we help to raise Breast Cancer Awareness amongst our clients and everyone around us.
Breast Cancer is something that hits close to home for us as a family.
“In September 2016, our family had been visited by an unwelcome guest when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Lucky for me it was discovered in an early stage and can I say that I am healthy and going strong, four years along the road. It was a difficult and trying time in our lives, but by the grace of God, I am still here.” – Mariette Joubert
I am sure you have been affected by this is as well, maybe a family member or even just somebody you know of. It is something that well, can flip around your whole universe and give you a MASSIVE wake up call.
“To show my gratitude, I asked permission to launch breast cancer awareness in the farm stall during October. We decided that we will donate R 5 from every two litre freshly squeezed orange juice sold from the 1st to the 31st of the month.” – Mariette Joubert
So this is our little initiative to thank God that we are still blessed with the presence of Mariette Joubert.
In the past, we donated this money to CANSA, for research. This year however, we want to contribute to Mariette’s oncologist’s special fund. There are patients who simply can not afford any of the treatment that she was privileged to receive. Her oncologist often pays for these patients out of her own pocket, and that is why we decided to assist her in this.
“I want to ask your support in this matter. We all know at least one woman who suffers from breast cancer: PLEASE BUY THE JUICE!” – Mariette Joubert
Did you know that you can freeze your Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice? Buy loads of 2 litres to support this initiative and freeze your bottles for up to a year and when you are ready to drink is, let it defrost and enjoy immediately. **Tip: Before freezing, just break the seal to let out some air and close the bottle again to prevent exploding in your clean freezer!**
On that note we would strongly ask each and every woman to get yourself tested during this month. There are many clinics and programmes that offer free/discounted mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Just hop onto Google and find a centre near you.
If you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will happily assist where we can or advise you to the correct people to chat to.
You are not alone… Remember that!
