Purpose of Telethon
CANSA is having a telethon to raise funds towards our 8 Care Homes situated country-wide.
Because rural districts don’t have oncology clinics, cancer patients living there have to move to unfamiliar and often distant bigger centres for up to six weeks to receive life-saving treatment – this can cause added trauma.
Our Care Homes, located close to treatment centres, provide patients with accommodation, healthy meals, and transport to and from treatment centres. Not to mention, important information and emotional support.
Our Care Homes are a safe haven for patients who require cancer treatment. Help us keep these safe havens open while our dedicated CANSA staff and volunteers are ensuring that patients are cared for and supported.
Will you give us the support we need to keep our Care Home doors open and make a difference in the lives of cancer patients?
How Your Donation Counts
- It will tell people living with cancer that they’re not alone. And if they’re fearful, you, and CANSA, are here for them.
- The donation is used towards the cost of the running of the Care Homes, electricity, water, food, petrol for transport to and from the hospitals and treatment centres, security to keep patients safe and general operating costs to make it a home-from-home for patients.
- CANSA continues to educate about cancer to lower the cancer risk, do screening for early detection of cancer and provide care and support programmes for all affected by cancer.

CANSA offers a unique integrated service to the public and to all people affected by cancer. CANSA is a leading role-player in cancer research and the scientific findings and knowledge gained from our research are used to realign our health programmes, as well as strengthen our watchdog role to the greater benefit of the public. Our health programmes comprise health and education campaigns; CANSA Care Centres that offer a wide range of care and support services to those affected by cancer; stoma and other clinical support; medical equipment hire, as well as a toll-free line to offer information and support. We offer a Tele Counselling service in seven languages free of charge. We also supply patient care and support in the form of 8 CANSA Care Homes in the main metropolitan areas for out-of-town cancer patients and CANSA-TLC lodging for parents and guardians of children undergoing cancer treatment.
