The Care for Cancer Foundation is a Non-Profit Organisation that aims to share the burden of cancer by improving patient access to MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES:
Cancer is a burden that impacts on the lives of all South Africans, across all languages, races, ages, genders and religions. Cancer, in its various forms, is currently the fourth biggest killer of South Africans.
This is despite the fact that most common cancers can be successfully treated if detected early enough.
The most common obstacles to successful treatment are money and resources - many South Africans are unable to afford early diagnosis procedures and rely heavily on government medical resources, or simply don't have access to adequate cancer treatment centres.
Our vision is simple: To share the burden in the fight against cancer.
We aim to alleviate the state health care providers' burden by refurbishing and upgrading treatment centres and providing access to early oncology diagnosis and treatment options and therapies.
We aim to share the patients' financial burden by giving them access to the diagnostic facilities they need.
Our Solution: Breaking New Ground!!!
We are planning for the future. The Care for Cancer Foundation is investing in the first ever Cancer Centre in South Africa to offer Free Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy as well as the first Free Mammography Centre in Kwa-Zulu Natal. As of July 2020 we have completed renovations to transform a derelict property into a Cancer Care Centre to provide Diagnostic and Mammography Services to underprivileged patients and indigent members of society FREE OF CHARGE!
How to be Part of the Solution
We will only be successful in achieving our mission with your support and partnership. As a public serving organization, we depend on the fiscal support and generosity of the public as we receive no government funding or sponsorships.
