The concept of Difference Makers SA indeed is a brilliant idea to introduce to the people of S.A. who our Top 100 Difference Makers are. I thank DMI-SA for the furthering of the initiative Pink Trees for Pauline. May more people of S.A. benefit through this brilliant tool.
Grace is the key that unlock the journeys of my life. I have learned to embrace the trials along my way in order to enrich the lives of those around me.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 I thought my life was about to end. The miraculous discovery of a lump took me on a brand new journey. The scar I carry is a special reminder of how very blessed I am to be able to share a very sacred part of myself.
But new friendships of distinct qualities were formed. New songs were birthed. New traits discovered. I was carried by prayers that formed a cloud around me. I felt love like never before. Beauty and grace was imprinted on my heart. My God was with me through this.
To manage Pink Trees for Pauline is an honour. It is the first initiative of its kind. For the first time in South Africa various registered cancer organisations work together to raise funds for their specific communities. The project was done in 101 towns last year with the population of an estimated 3 720 342 of which more than 75% are disadvantaged. An estimated 8 828 people benefitted from the 2015. We estimate 11 035 for 2016.10.06
Artists like Romanz, David Fourie, Anna Davel and Michael Lindt recorded my songs which is another trait I embrace to bring awareness to Pink Tress initiative. Lilly van Liekieland is an Afrikaans music production performed by Tikara Carin Groenewald and touching hearts of little one’s across the country.
May in closing dedicate the following words to all who serve others:-
May those behind the saddened scenes
Who shares with love and grace
Who allow your hearts always to break
Be honoured through all of your days.
