#InternationalVolunteersDay – as a non-profit organisation, CANSA relies heavily on its trained volunteers to help fight against cancer, in their local communities. We truly value our volunteers, many of whom have personally been affected by cancer, and assist staff throughout the country to educate local communities about awareness of the signs of cancer, the importance of regular cancer screening and living a balanced lifestyle to lower cancer risk.

We simply would not have enough hands to deliver our service to those affected by cancer without our remarkable, dedicated volunteers.
