We are so proud of our very own Lerato, who as an ostomate summited Mount Kilimanjaro.

“After I confronted this stage3 colorectal cancer mountain and survived it, I felt the urgent need to create awareness about this type of cancer and what being an ostomate means. Being an avid multi-day hiker I felt my ostomy gave me another chance at living life to the fullest while making an impact on the lives of those less fortunate,” 

With a mission to close the care gap and raise funds for the medical attention, supplies and mental wellness of colorectal cancer patients and stoma patients, Lerato began her charity climb and took eight days to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, at 5 895m.
