Our Care Home Offering:
Magda, cancer Survivor, stayed at one of CANSA’s Care Homes, for the six weeks she was undergoing radiotherapy. She had a room overlooking the garden and made friends with two other ladies who were also staying over and receiving treatment. Every day they were transported to the treatment centre. Says Magda, “It’s wonderful here. The meals are just right when you’re not feeling so well. I don’t feel self-conscious. We’re all in the same boat.”
