A leader in the fight against cancer in SA, since 1931, the purpose of the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) is to offer a unique, integrated service to the public and to all people affected by cancer.
Its mission is to be the preferred non-profit leader that enables research with regards to lowering cancer risk, educating the public regarding symptoms, screening and risk reduction, and providing care and support to all people affected by cancer.
CANSA is committed to connecting people facing cancer with information, day-to-day help as well as emotional support they need in the communities where they live. Our aim is to ensure that cancer Survivors and their loved ones don’t have to face cancer alone; we’re here to support them through every step of their cancer journey.*

*The responsibility rests with patients to contact CANSA for assistance. CANSA is not informed of any diagnoses/of patients being treated at medical centres. Family need to obtain permission from patients, before CANSA may contact them.
