CANSA’s Holistic Cancer Care & Support
CANSA provides guidance and advice to cancer survivors and their families to improve their quality of life in all phases of treatment and after treatment. At our CANSA Care Centres we provide holistic care and support to cancer survivors from the time of diagnosis, through all phases of need, including survivorship.
CANSA has declared August 2017 CANSA Care Month, with special focus on Caregivers. No first-time caregiver knows what to do as there are no rules and regulations to follow, however CANSA is able to offer knowledge, information, support and encouragement whenever required.
