Victoria's Promise Victoria’s Promise is a charity founded in the memory of Victoria van der Westhuizen who passed away of cancer at age 29, filling the critical gaps in emotional, practical, physical and social support for young women who have been diagnosed with cancer. The aim of the charity is to support and empower young women, and their families, through the challenges of cancer treatment.
Some of the services we offer the women are counselling for them and their immediate family, cleaning and childcare services, yoga, microblading and other specialised beauty treatments including oncology massage. Alongside the support services, Victoria’s Promise runs Affinity workshops. Bringing together young women going through similar journeys and challenges. These get-togethers remove the feeling of isolation, reduce fear and increase positivity and empowerment – all vital to their overall wellbeing, recovery and reduce recurrence.
Victorias Promise is there from day one to ensure these young women can concentrate on their treatment and recovery at the same time as keeping as much stability and normality in the home.
