Reducing Cancer Risk and Early Detection
The most effective weapon against cancer is knowledge. If you consider that one-in-four individuals may be affected by the disease during their lifetime, you will realise how powerful knowledge is in terms of risk reduction and early detection.
CANSA’s programmes and campaigns aim to reduce cancer risk and promote early detection of cancer.
All programmes and campaigns are underpinned by research.
CANSA’s Campaigns to Reduce Cancer Risk:
The following campaigns are launched throughout the country during the course of the year: SunSmart and Environment Campaign | Balanced Lifestyle Campaign | No-Tobacco Campaign | CANSA on the Move for the Youth Campaign | CANSA’s Holistic Care & Support | Childhood Cancer | Women’s Health Campaign | Men’s Health Campaign.
If You have Recently been Diagnosed with Cancer:
Whether you have recently been diagnosed with cancer or whether you are a veteran who has undergone the rigours of treatment, or if you are now in remission, CANSA considers you a cancer Survivor.
