NCCS Mascot “Buddie the Badger” Outreach


​NCCS Mascot “Buddie the Badger” Outreach 

The humble honey badger is reputed to be the most fearless animal on the planet. The reason being, he never gives up, no matter how big his opponent. Such is his tenacity; he’s been known to fight bears and even lions. Not even bee stings can deter him from reaching his favourite – honey. We likened his character with that of our many cancer fighters. “Buddie the Badger” plays an important part in engaging the community at NCCS’s outreach activities. He also shows up at NCCS from time to time during special occasions to bring some colour and cheer to our patients.
