It’s time to get loud in colour and give Hope by planning for CANSA Shavathon 2018. CANSA’s annual Shavathon has become the darling of South Africa’s fundraising events in support of a worthy cause. In 2018, it will be staged for the 15th consecutive time in shopping centres around the country on 24 & 25 February ( and at workplaces from 26 February to 2 March. Not only has the shaving or spraying of heads become symbolic gestures in support of cancer patients and cancer survivors, it continues to ease the strain experienced by patients who lose their hair while undergoing treatment.

Shavathon provides the opportunity to give back, by raising funds for cancer patient care & support programmes through shaving or spraying, or by making a hair donation for wigs; and to show solidarity with family, friends, colleagues or fellow students battling cancer, or whose loved ones are fighting cancer. It’s also a time to remember and honour those who have lost the battle. We hope to see you at Shavathon 2018!
