Katherine Nair knows what it feels like to receive bad news. In 2009, her 18 month old daughter, now 7, was diagnosed with ewings carcinoma, a rare form of bone cancer which meant she and her family would spend the next year and a half in an out of hospitals before they were given the all clear in 2010. Several years on she would learn her next door neighbour; a mother of 3 small children, was battling breast cancer. Her response came from an empathy that ran deep. “I know how tough a cancer diagnoses can be,” says Katherine who simply began reaching out to the family by baking and delivering cakes which led to home cooked meals and babysitting. Last Christmas the Nair family gave her neighbour a pamper pack from Sisterhood comprising of magazines, candles, massage cream and chocolates. “She was completely overwhelmed,” recalls Katherine, her eyes welling up as she remembered just how tough this past year had been for the Hindu family and how God has opened their hearts to receive prayer. “My neighbour couldn’t believe that a community of people, other than her own family, had responded with such kindness. We were able to soften this lady’s heart with love.” That’s what the My Streets Cares is all about.
