Christine Roos has conquered the Everest of Cape Swims

# South African Bone Marrow Registry ambassador Christine Roos has conquered the gruelling 33-kilometer False Bay crossing, dubbed the Everest of Cape Swims. Yesterday she braved the icy waters between Millers Point and Rooi Els and pushed through jellyfish stings, exhaustion and pain to complete the swim. Roos did this to raise at least 50-thousand-rand towards the registry’s Patient Assistance Programme. She says this swim was nothing compared to what patients and their families have to endure to find a matching donor as a result of a life-threatening blood disorder.
