Killing cancer with cupcakes

National Cupcake Day 4 Kids with Cancer was held on Saturday, 29 September across 79 malls in the country and involved thousands of bakers – also known as Cupcake Angels – who began preparations many months before. Krugersdorp’s own Key West Shopping Centre and Cradlestone Mall were no exception when passing shoppers were presented with the opportunity to support the very worthy cause. Angels at Key West were joined by two local parents and volunteers – Danell and Nico Smith – who sadly lost their two-year-old son, Juwan to cancer on 12 August.
