Help Shana's mom fight cancer

Shana da Costa is looking forward to spending more time with her mom although she has been diagnosed with an aggressive type of breast cancer which is now in stage 4.

To help her mom, Shana has created a back a buddy account with a target of R250 000 to get donations towards her mother's treatment.
