CANSA TLC Video – Recognise Childhood Cancer

It is estimated that at least half of all children with cancer in South Africa are never diagnosed. This is due to a lack of knowledge regarding the disease amongst children and as a result many children are diagnosed too late, when the cancer is already in an advanced stage, thus diminishing the possibility of successful treatment. Knowledge is powerful in terms of early detection of childhood cancer. Learn how to recognise childhood cancer…

CANSA would like to thank the following TUKS students, who created this video in their 1st year – Danielle Pienaar (writer, director, producer), Kunashe Manyame (writer, director, producer) and Rozanne van As (writer, director, editor).


CANSA’s TLC Programme focuses on awareness of childhood cancers and early detection, as well as providing tangible love, care and support to children and families affected by cancer.
