CANSA Activities: Celebrate International Cancer Survivor’s Day

Survivor's Day

Join our celebrations on the 12th June 2014

CANSA along with Nielsen staff, as part of Nielsen’s Global Impact Day, will visit each CANSA Care Home and some of our Care Centres, to meet with our cancer survivors on the 12th of June 2014.

Everyone taking part will write an inspirational message on a piece of cloth in support of a cancer survivor. The pieces of cloth will then be woven together and made into table cloths, curtains, quilts, bed spreads, table mats, etc for the Care Home or Care Centres concerned.
