CANSA's Holistic Cancer Care & Support

International Cancer Survivor’s Day Celebrated in June

Hope 3 editedAs June month marks International Cancer Survivor’s Day – together with Nielsen (a research company), CANSA encourages celebrating life with cancer Survivors and their families by organising  a special day filled with hope, support and nurturing – a cancer Survivor is anyone who has cancer or has had cancer in the past.

CANSA would like to share the following message with our cancer Survivors:

“We are honoured to wish you a happy International Cancer Survivor’s Day. You show us that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, productive and even inspiring. This is something to celebrate! We also pay tribute to all our health care providers, caregivers and researchers who devote their efforts to increase the length and quality of the life of our cancer Survivors,” says Elize Joubert (Acting CEO CANSA).

Activities at our Care Homes (12 June):

As part of Nielsen’s Global Impact Day, Nielsen staff 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. See activities here…
