In 2008 Spa Wellness Travel (Spa Travel back then) organised a four night retreat to Tasmania, walking the stunning Bay of Fires before having our final night in Hobart with a rejuvenating spa treatment and wholesome dinner. Monies from this retreat were donated to the McGrath Foundation.
"Last night we had total 17 people came + 6 volunteers and we share about bra after mastectomy to them. They respond very positive and we donate to 6 ladies each got 2 set of bra and prosthesis. For some of them who needs scarf we also give and teach them how to use it.
It was such huge joy to see them very happy and grateful when Ibu Gaye and volunteer (Bali Pink Ribbon founder) helped them to choose the fit one for them. The thing is we ran out size 36, lucky none of them request the size!"
"As I send also the photo of the Doctor who had consultation with the man. Actually, his wife is still in hospital regarding breast cancer disease and he came to see what we actually do. He was attending the talk for his wife. Its touching moment, after all of us making bracelet (as a healing therapy) he hold the bracelet and kissed it and said, "this is for my wife, I believe she can make it through all
the process, thanks for the prayer for her"."
" The fact that people who come to Support Group not only patients or survivor but also their loved ones is a good thing for us, they need someone to encourage to be strong also. thank you."
