Heal the world….

“There Are Ways
To Get There
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
Make A Better Place…”

Michael Jackson

The song was released in 1991 on Michael Jackson’s album, Dangerous.  Out of all his hit singles, this was the song he valued most and was the proudest writing in his life time.  This may come as a cliché, and surely Michael did not come without controversy, but still one of the greatest songs of all time delivered by one of the greatest and unique artists in history.

Clara Hanekom, which this special edition of Lens & Ladle is featuring, was diagnosed with blood cancer on the 12th of April 2016.

Anja & Liza Mostert, was set to make a difference, with lots of fun!  They took up the kitchen to bake a radical cake for Clara.  The little ones from Cape Town were really amped, and wanted to get down & dirty without wasting time! … and a really special thought is that they have never met 3yr old Clara … wow!

Medical update: Clara is free of cancer cells and in remission at the moment, but she still needs to continue her program.  She is in phase 3 and needs to go through 1 more phase, then two year on a maintenance phase where blood samples and chemo therapy will still be a reality.  In 5 years from now, with lots of prayers, she will have a normal life, just like her friends.
