Care for Cancer Foundation
exists to increase national access to cancer treatment care and support
As a first step, we create pathways for patients to access much needed targeted therapies, which can help with one disease or many. We form partnerships with physicians, industry and governments, along with the patients themselves to enable access solutions. Next, we work with physicians around disease education, identifying patient leaders and forming patient groups. Finally, we provide capacity building to leaders and patient organizations; partnering with them to bring dignity and hope to people facing cancer, no matter where they live.
Our Approach to Saving Lives
We believe in building ecosystems around people facing cancer around South Africa
