Welcome to Natalie’s Circle of Love - a growing network of people holding 12 year-old Natalie in their hearts.
Natalie’s courage, maturity and determination to conquer an extremely rare form of bone cancer has inspired all who are following her story since she was diagnosed with Chordoma in January 2011 when she was 10 years old.
There is an ancient African proverb that “it takes a village to raise a child”; and, aside from our large and devoted family in Cape Town and across South Africa; and the abundant and amazing friends we have all over the world, Natalie has connected many people who care deeply about her and have reached out to offer love and support in a myriad ways.
This site has become a powerful conduit for love, hope and faith and Natalie’s incredible story is a source of great inspiration shared all over the world. Natalie’s Circle of Love is powerful and inspiring and we know we are never alone. Thank you for your messages, your prayers, your care and your selfless donations - you make a difference.
In order to formally raise funds to support Natalie’s treatment and her family, we have established Natalie’s Circle of Love Trust. This is a registered legal entity administrated by trustees, managed transparently and administered with good governance. Your support is deeply appreciated. Please click on the “Make a Donation” page to find safe payment options in South Africa and Internationally.
We hope that you will follow Natalie’s incredible journey and share the link with your friends. Please enjoy exploring this site, leave a message for us and learn about the many miracles we celebrate every day.

Of course Natalie’s incredible story would not be possible without raising the much-needed funds, but it is the abundant love, care, prayers and positive energy that is invested in Natalie’s healing that carries us.
With your love and prayers, we know our daughter is held in a divine circle of love.
With much gratitude,
Shirley Lowe & Jonny Cohen
