90 Years of CANSA caring and service, thanks to people like you!

Please celebrate with us as we thank you and show appreciation for your part in this milestone of caring service to cancer patients and their families.

You’ve played, and continue to play, a greater role than you can imagine.

From small beginnings in 1931, it’s friends like you who have ensured that the organisation has had the means to grow and evolve throughout the years to what it is today. Thank you for the privilege of your partnership and for the services we’re able to continue to offer.

Those people who believe in the significance of numbers say that 90 stands for humanitarianism, compassion and philanthropy, as well as wholeness and inclusiveness.

Even without believing that numbers have a significance, the quoted ethos around the number 90 is right on target as you’ll see below in the many ways in which your donations help.
