Donate Basic Items to TLC Families of Young Cancer Patients

CANSA TLC Logo.cdrCANSA TLC (Tough Living with Cancer) is a programme for children and teens diagnosed with cancer, or affected by cancer (a family member has cancer). Support is provided to the family as a whole in both scenarios.

Support a Family in Need:
