PinkDrive is a Non-Profit Company (NPC) that is committed to improving breast cancer awareness and education. “PinkDrive cannot think of a better way to honour the women of our country,” says Noelene Kotschan, PinkDrive Founder and CEO.
“This event creates a platform for PinkDrive to create awareness and educate the participants regarding breast cancer and the importance of early detection.
“Our medical staff will be on hand to do clinical breast examinations; a PinkDrive representative will do a mass educational talk, while Janice Benecke, a breast Cancer Survivor, will share her story”.
According to Janice Benecke, PinkDrive gave her back her life. “In 1994 I was diagnosed with germ cell cancer,” said Benecke.
“Miraculously, I recovered and received a clean bill of health. 14 years later, I found a lump in my breast which turned out to be breast cancer. After another operation and more chemotherapy, I recovered a second time. Unfortunately, during this period, my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma; bone marrow cancer. He passed away after seven months”.
“PinkDrive have given me back my life,” continues Benecke.
“I now feel wanted and that my life and trials have been worthwhile. I love to help and advise the next person so that their journey is a bit easier. I am really looking forward to the Totalsports Women’s Race. I absolutely love the race. The bracelet that we received on the finish line last year was the best gift ever”.
