On Wednesday 23rd July, Costa Women celebrated their 3rd Annual Summer

Party at Miraflores Restaurant in Riveria. Over a hundred Women from
across the Costa del Sol had a fantastic gala dinner night with music
by Voulez Vous, the popular ABBA tribute band, and local celebrity DJ,
Laurie Scott. The night raised 1,200€ for the Danii Cancer Charity.

Danii Toni (now 18) set up her Charity after being diagnosed with
Ewing Sarcoma in 2011. She endured 6 cycles of chemotherapy, a major
back operation to eradicate the source of the primary cancer and a
bone marrow transplant.

Having witnessed the suffering of many children during her own
treatment, Danii saw how many families struggled to support children
with cancer. Danii determined to do something about this and set up
Danii Children's Cancer Charity in 2012. Her charity has now raised
in excess of 75,000€ which has helped children's dreams come true on
trips of a lifetime, helped families with financial support and
purchased vital equipment for the children's oncology unit at Virgen
Del Rocio Hospital where she was treated.

Devastatingly, Danii was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in May
of this year and is currently in Hospital in Seville. It is hoped her
treatment will finish in November. Her work continues. Please visit to find out more about how you can help her work.
