Sanlam and CANSA have partnered the Sanlam Cancer Challenge since 1993. The purpose of the challenge is to raise funds and awareness annually for the fight against cancer. Over 40 000 golfers play in more than 800 club competitions held around the country in support of CANSA’s prevention programmes and patient care services throughout the year.
CANSA offers a unique integrated service to the public and all people affected by cancer.
As a leading role-player in cancer research (more than R6 million spent annually), the scientific findings and knowledge gained from CANSA’s research is used to realign our health programmes as well as strengthen our watchdog role to the greater benefit of the public. Our wide-reaching health programme includes prevention and education campaigns, CANSA Care Centres that offer stoma and lymphoedema clinics, medical equipment hire, toll-free line and support to children and their families affected by cancer.
