CANSA letter to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu
You have taught us to raise our hands – to move our hands – and to look at our hands. It was with amazement that we noticed that our hands were of different colours representing different people. You then taught us that the different colours make us the Rainbow People of God.
You have served as an inspiration to many individuals, especially cancer survivors. Your support of the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) has not been surpassed by anyone else. It was with sadness, therefore, that we learnt about your recent health concerns. You will remain in our prayers and our supplication is that God will work in His own mysterious ways to bless the new course of medication that you will be taking and that this will cause improvement in your health.
