The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) owns the licensing rights in South Africa regarding the planning and implementation of The American Cancer Society’s nationwide signature activity, Relay For Life.

CANSA focuses on lowering cancer risk and early detection through education, research and advocacy. Local CANSA Care Centres throughout South Africa offer care and support services to cancer Survivors (patients), Caregivers and loved ones.

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, their caregivers and 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 and caregivers to contact CANSA for assistance. CANSA is not informed of any diagnoses / of patients being treated at medical centres. Family and caregivers need to obtain permission from patients, before CANSA may contact them. Read more…
