How Referrals to CANSA Work


CANSA is committed to connecting people facing cancer with information, day-to-day help as well as emotional support they need in the communities where they live. Our aim is to ensure that cancer Survivors and their loved ones don’t have to face cancer alone; we’re here to support them through every step of their cancer journey.*

* The responsibility rests with patients to contact CANSA for assistance. CANSA is not informed of any diagnoses / of patients being treated at medical centres. Family need to obtain permission from patients, before CANSA may contact them.

Please contact your local CANSA Care Centre for support. Find contact details on this web page and click on the CANSA Care Centre closest to you, to go through to its web page where you will find detailed information regarding services provided.


KANSA se strewe is om met mense wat deur kanker geraak word in verbinding te tree en te bly en om soveel as moontlik inligting te deel met kankerpasiënte. Ons wil graag toesien dat pasiënte en hul geliefdes emosionele ondersteuning ontvang in die gemeenskappe waar hulle woon. Ons doel is om seker te maak dat kankeroorwinnaars en hul geliefdes nie kanker alleen in die gesig hoef te staar nie; ons is daar om hulle tree vir tree te vergesel op hul reis met kanker.*

*Dit bly die pasiënt se verantwoordelikheid om KANSA vir ondersteuning te kontak. KANSA word nie ingelig aangaande pasiënte wat gediagnoseer word, of behandeling ontvang, by mediese fasiliteite nie. Familielede moet eers toestemming vanaf pasiënte ontvang, voordat KANSA hulle mag kontak.

Kontak asseblief jou plaaslike KANSA Sorgsentrum vir ondersteuning. Vind kontakbesonderhede op hierdie webblad en klik dan op die Sorgsentrum naaste aan jou, om gedetailleerde inligting m.b.t. dienste wat verskaf word te vind.


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 (more than R12 million spent annually) 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 and organisational management; medical equipment hire, as well as a toll-free line to offer information and support.

We also supply patient care and support in the form of 11 CANSA Care Homes in the main metropolitan areas for out-of-town cancer patients; a Wellness Centre based in Polokwane; and CANSA-TLC lodging for parents and guardians of children undergoing cancer treatment.
