Executive Summary

  • The Faces of Hope Foundation is a Section 21, non-profit organisation, which spent over two years in conceptualisation, before being officially registered, in January 2008
  • Purely voluntary based, the foundation has two overriding objectives
  • Firstly, Faces of Hope seeks to assist select cancer sufferers in meeting basic financial costs to cover debilitating (not only on the body, but also on the pocket) oncology treatment
  • Secondly, the foundation is committed to raising awareness levels of- and educating the general public, on blood cancers. To achieve this, the foundation is looking into the establishment of a South African Lymphoma Committee or Council. As yet, there is no such body representing this particular strain of cancer. It is envisioned that the committee will consist of all relevant stakeholders in the management of the disease: Pharma, Oncology Health Professionals, Health Insurance and select patients who have expressed a willingness to become involved.
