CANSA Shavathon 2019

Newtons hosted there first ever CANSA Shavathon on the 8th March this year This  is one of South Africa’s best-loved events in support of a very worthy cause, namely showing solidarity with those affected by cancer. Losing one’s hair is a common side-effect of cancer therapy – so shaving your head has become a symbolic gesture of support for cancer Survivors. Colouring your hair has also become an option for those who prefer not to shave, or who can’t shave on the day.  Thank you to all the Partners and Staff that volunteered and embraced the moment.
