National Cancer Week takes place from 31st July to 5th August. For the last 80 years CANSA has been providing care and support to cancers survivors, giving them hope and caring for them. CANSA encourages cancer survivors to live life to the fullest ‘and to see themselves as a survivor from the day of diagnosis’. Sue Janse van Rensburg, CANSA’s CEO and cancer survivor of 29 years, says “CANSA is part of the cancer survivor’s journey and together we will do whatever we can to ensure that there is always hope.”
