In Memory of my Mother | Maike Van Niekerk | TEDxDalhousieU

Maike took a tragedy of losing her mother and turned it into a strength and motivator. She has dedicated her life to helping cancer patients and continually feels the support of her number one motivation, her mom. After losing her mother to breast cancer at age 15, Maike has dedicated her life to helping those faced with similar illnesses. Apart from volunteering nearly 25 hours a week primarily for organizations that support cancer patients, Maike is the founder of Katrinís Karepackage (KK), an initiative named after her mother, Katrin Kohler. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
