Volunteers use their own money to arrange monthly day cares for patients which includes a delicious lunch, transporting of those patients that cannot manage and preparing some kind of entertainment be it educational or relaxation based, so patients can socialise with others going through the same difficulties as their own thereby encouraging extended support structures.
Our emphasis is supporting the patient, making them feel wanted and understood, cared for, loved and acknowledged.
The public is more than welcome to get in contact with volunteers if they wish to make contribution towards their day care.
Schools and Colleges are also welcome to host day cares for our patients.
(Some day cares hosted by Al Ghazali College where our patients were welcomed with warmth and kindness)
Cancer Awareness (breast, prostate/other) and Medical Awareness Day
LCCG hosts a medical awareness day annually at the end of October/beginning of November.
Sometimes independently and sometimes in conjunction with another organisation.
We organise medical awareness initiatives to encourage our community to get themselves examined for early detection and prevention of cancer.
Making available free mammograms and prostate cancer test kits to members of our community not on medical aid.
Prevention is always better than cure, join us to make a difference.
Laudium Cancer Care Year End Function
LCCG hosts a year end function during the last week of November every year.
We celebrate the survival of all those who have made it through
the year catering a three course meal, gifts and entertainment for our patients.
This act of celebration is in actual fact an important acknowledgement of the patient’s effort to take their medication on time, follow a healthy eating plan, exercise, keeping their spirits up despite the mental and physical strain on their body during treatment and maintaining their remission status for those in remission.
We end the work year with joy and happiness and lots of shared love and tears.
If you are an entertainer, be it comedy, magic, dance or of any other talent you wish to share with our patients on a voluntary basis, please contact us.
