Just Because

Just because is a registered charity dedicated to raise funds for the treatment and prevention of cancer in Egypt and to help smaller cancer charities in the UK.  The health system in Egypt is such that any treatment for cancer has to be personally funded, Can you imagine having been given a diagnosis along with a pricelist for your life saving treatment? Therefore the majority of our funds are send directly to the Breast Cancer foundation for Egypt who help to pay for those who cannot afford their own treatment, and we also help people with cancer diagnoses who are within our dance network.  We are currently helping Hanan Mahmoud, with her treatment and have a dedicated fund for her.  All four trustees of the charity are volunteers, taking time and effort to raise both funds and awareness of the charity and of Breast health.  We are very grateful that Fantasia has allowed us to bring a stall, please come and say hi to us there We look forward to seeing you!
