Book: Sister Warriors – A Tribute to Women Battling Cancer

Book: Sister Warriors – A Tribute to Women Battling Cancer

About the “Sister Warriors” book

CANSA’s ‘Sister Warriors’ tea table book is the perfect gift to celebrate women of courage. It tells the stories of women who have survived cancer, of women who have given unconditional love and support to loved ones with cancer and of women who live to make a difference to the lives of others. It showcases beautiful artwork done by children with cancer as well as prolific South African artists.

These stories touch the heart in a profound way – and although it sometimes saddens one, it always inspires and shows the beauty of the human spirit. One of the women featured in the book recalls her own painful memories of battling cancer, her successful recovery and pays tribute to her six-year old daughter who was also struck by cancer.
