Corals for cureIt seems like everyone I know is either related to or knows of someone with cancer.  Cancer is a complex, life-threatening disease which affects millions and there are over 200 different kinds of cancer!!  Cancer kills more people every year than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.  Some scary facts, but they make you sit up and take notice. One company that has taken notice and is doing something about it is Unique Corals.  To help show support for the millions who are touched by, and will continue to be touched by cancer, they created a charity called “Corals for The Cure”(C4C).  They’ve teamed up with Justin Credabel from ReefGen who has designed frag plugs specially for the charity who will donate proceeds from the sale of corals mounted on these plugs to help support cancer research and education. If you want to help do something about this terrible disease, why not buy your next frag from C4C!?!  And if you’re in South Africa, you can go one step further and take part in the Shavathon between 24 and 28 February.  Shave your head or die your hair green for a good cause…I dare you!
