Important Announcement

The safety and health of our cancer patients, volunteers and staff is paramount.

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.


During this time, we as CANSA Relayers are all staying healthy and doing our part to keep others healthy too. While we can’t be physically together at this time, it certainly doesn’t mean we don’t miss our Relay friends and family.

At the heart of CANSA Relay For Life is the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, to remember those who have left us and create awareness about 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.
