Emilene to Conquer Kilimanjaro

Emilene is a devoted grandmother to 2 year old Tristan who received treatment in the Hospital’s Burns Unit after suffering burns to his upper body in 2009.

The Ferreira’s are so grateful for the phenomenal care and support that Tristan received at the Hospital from doctors and medical staff that they decided, as a family, they would like to give back to the Hospital in some way. 

Emilene has created her own blog to document her fundraising and fitness progress over the months leading up to her expedition in July.

Please visit Emilene’s blog at to hear all the exciting news and see the way her community is opening up their heats, and purses, to support this cause which is so close to her heart.
