February 11, 2019 – MALIBU, Calif., U.S. – Plastic Oceans International and Breathe Conservation, two global nonprofit organizations dedicated to solving the plastic pollution problem, today announced Swim Against Plastic: Easter Island, a campaign to raise awareness about plastic pollution with a world-record swim, education and beach cleanups on Easter Island in March. Sarah Ferguson, a former national swimmer for South Africa and founder of Breathe Conservation, will attempt to set a world record to become the first person ever to swim the entire perimeter of Easter Island. Her journey will cover more than 40 miles (65 kilometers) through cold water and dangerous currents, and the swim is estimated to take up to 24 hours to complete. “This is a huge challenge, but my passion for ocean protection and rehabilitation is a strong driving force that fuels this dream,” said Sarah Ferguson, founder of Breathe Conservation. “It is our responsibility to protect the ocean, and I’m proud to partner with Plastic Oceans International on this campaign to fight the problem of plastic pollution.” Located in the South Pacific Ocean between Chile and New Zealand, Easter Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Chilean territory that is considered the most remote inhabited island on the planet. The waters surrounding the island contain one of the highest concentrations of microplastics in the world, most of which originates from sources thousands of miles away. In addition, 20 tons of trash is produced daily on the island, so waste management issues, especially related to the growing tourism industry, are prevalent. Swim Against Plastic: Easter Island includes a series of beach cleanups to help restore Easter Island’s fragile environment. Plastic Oceans and Breathe Conservation are organizing the events with the island’s local communities and nonprofit organizations, encouraging all residents to participate. “The planet needs leaders to draw attention to the serious . . .
In 2018, Port Elizabeth based Radiology group, Bayradiology, installed a Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography Scanner at their rooms at the Cancer Care Centre in Mangold Street, Newton Park. Not only was this the first PET/CT scanner in the Eastern Cape but it remains the only one in operation in the Province today and has proven to be of enormous assistance to oncology patients who previously had to fly out of town to get a PET/CT Scan. Benefits of the new PET/CT Scanner: PET/CT is particularly effective in identifying whether a cancer is present or not. It can also be used to assess the response to treatment. Cancers, for which PET/CT is considered effective include lung, head and neck, colorectal, oesophageal, lymphona, melanoma, breast, thyroid, cervical, pancreatic as well as other less frequently occurring cancers PET/CT images indicate biochemical activity and can accurately characterise a tumor as benign or malignant, thereby guiding the surgeon to an appropriate biopsy site or even avoiding surgical biopsy. Because a PET scan images the entire body, confirmation of distant metastases can alter treatment plans in certain cases from surgical intervention to chemotherapy. In an effort to further maximise their service capabilities, Drs Naude and Kaarse underwent training in Zurich and the PET/CT Radiographers of Bayradiology have received extensive practical training on the official PET/CT Scanner. Patients who wish to have a PET/CT scan will need a referral from their doctor. In most cases, the cost of the PET/CT scan could be covered by the medical aid, but patients are advised to enquire about this from their medical aid prior to the examination. For more information, please contact the Bayradiology branch at the Cancer Care Centre on Tel: (041) 363 0759. CLICK HERE to submit your press release to MyPR.co.za. . . .

#RunningDry community joins with Mina Guli on marathon 100 NEW YORK, February 11, 2019. International water activist, Mina Guli’s #RunningDry movement came full circle on Monday 11 February, 100 days after Mina kicked off by running the New York Marathon. Having initially started as a solo campaign for Mina to run 100 marathons in 100 consecutive days around the world to raise awareness for the global water crisis, the campaign turned into a movement after marathon 62 when Mina fractured her femur and was no longer able to continue on her own. Thousands of people from more than 44 countries across all 7 continents banded together to cover the distance for Mina, logging a collective distance equal to the distance from the North to South Pole, whilst at the same time pledging to do what they can to save water. The sport of running was used as a way to highlight water issues around the world. “Over the past 100 days we have seen first-hand the enormous impact on families, communities and economies when taps run dry. But we have also had the privilege of meeting incredible water heroes around the world who are 100 percent committed to helping save our most precious resource,” says Mina Guli. Starting with the New York City Marathon on the 4th of November 2018, Mina ran a marathon every day, while travelling to run across Europe (UK, France, Italy), Uzbekistan, India, China, Hong Kong, Dubai, the Middle East (Jordan, Palestine, Israel), and South Africa where an acute fracture was identified in her femur. She then went on to Australia before heading back to the USA to finish the 100-day journey back where she started in New York. “When I broke my leg in Cape Town someone told me an old African proverb – if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together – which perfectly sums up the #RunningDry movement,” says Mina. “Together we have created a movement for change - people around the world stepping up for water saving, and committing to . . .
