As our most valued partner, we assure you that CANSA is taking all the necessary precautions to minimise the impact of COVID-19. Cancer patients are among those at high risk of serious illness from an infection because their immune systems are often vulnerable.
All current CANSA activities and events are postponed or suspended for now to ensure that we play our part in making sure we protect our communities. It’s best that we practise social distancing and have less physical interaction. CANSA will continue supporting patients virtually via our platforms and our WhatsApp lines. Please stay in touch with our CANSA Care Centre for updates and news.
We’ll continue to monitor the situation and will announce a new date for activities and events once we feel it is safe to do so. We still need your support now more than ever – thank you for your understanding.
Every year nearly 9.5 million people across the globe die from cancer, and millions more are affected by the deadly disease. February 4 is #WorldCancerDay. In partnership with Global Relay For Life, CANSA is committed to saving and celebrating more lives. We are proud to be part of the 1.7 million Relayers around the globe, doing our part in the fight against cancer.
Are you ready to do your part? Join us by registering for your local CANSA Relay For Life event here or donate to our CANSA Relay For Life fundraising efforts.

I will continue to be part of CANSA Relay For Life until there is a white paper bag on the side of the track with my face on it. I just can’t myself not being part of this amazing event.
Cancer not only affects the survivor but the whole family and all of the friends of the survivor. We must remember that and celebrate them as well as the survivor.

I could not believe how many people were affected by cancer in some way. There are so many South Africans diagnosed with cancer each day. This event can spread cancer awareness and give hope to cancer survivors, their families and caregivers.
