  • I just want to say thanks, to CANSA, for all your help, and support. Because I was diagnose with cancer, I understand the feelings that goes through your mind. After the doctor notice me, that I am clean of the cancer, still I got that feeling, things that goes through my mind. All cancer patient needs support, help 24/7. The problem is, people don’t understand, what goes through a cancer patient’s mind. That fear, wondering how long will you still be here, when will you die. Be prepared for that moment, when you gone die, and many other things

    Children that is been diagnose with any kind of cancer, they need help, And support the most. They are young, and don’t know what to expect in the future.
    I just want to say thanks, to the people who support CANSA.

      Thank you for your support Willem, it is wonderful to know that the support we provide is making a difference, as we believe no-one should have to face cancer alone. Please consider joining our FBK support group for cancer patients and loved ones, to inspire them and to receive encouragement also:

    I had cancer in 2004 and as can be seen I’m still here. I never knew about the Cansa group so i had nobody to learn on but now I do and I will support you guys. Like Dennis I’m also a radio amateur ZS1RJQ.

    • Debbie @CANSA says:

      I’m sad to hear that you didn’t receive the support you needed at the time you were diagnosed. Thank you for your support Michael. Please consider joining our FBK Support Group for adult patients and loved ones to inspire our patients. The group is for those who have been diagnosed, receiving treatment or in remission:

    The children of the late Ivy Ruiters would like to thank you for your support during our Mother’s struggling time. Sadly she went home to be with the Lord on 23.12.2019, but your assistance was greatly appreciated.
    We salute all cancer survivors and their families and all the support staff at your association… God bless you all.

    • Debbie @CANSA says:

      Thank you for letting us know Wendy, our deepest condolences to you and your family.
