They paid a visit to the children in the Touch Living with Cancer (TLC) ward at the Pietersburg Provincial Hospital where they spent time with the children and their parents. After that they visited Centenary House to listen to Jimmy Letswalo’s story.

Jimmy is a quadriplegic, who was in an accident in 1988.

Lunch was time spent with the siblings of some children that have cancer in order to tell them they are not forgotten. And the day ended with a visit to Sannie Strydom (93)

“We want to put smiles on other people’s faces,” explain Nagel. “We contacted René Robberts at the Cancer Association of Souht Africa (Cansa) Polokwane who then assisted us with identifying people that needs to smile. We will definitely return and bring smiles to more people.”
