“Ubuntu – I am a person through other people. My humanity is tied to yours.” – South African Proverb
Cancer strikes one in three women and one in two men over a lifetime. More than ten million people die from it each year.
The best chance to reduce these numbers is through early detection and intervention. Over 19.3 million new cancer cases are expected in 2022.
Most cancer cases are preventable and survival rates improve dramatically when cancer is diagnosed early and the disease is confined to the organ of origin.
Our digital products – like our risk assessment tool, our self-check reminders and walkthroughs – are built to raise awareness and help people reduce exposure to cancer risk factors. We reach over a million South Africans each month.
By referring your friends and family, you help give the gifts that The Cancer Foundation has to offer: Early detection tools, life-saving advice, and engaging content with evidence-based advice cancer prevention advice.
Alone we can protect ourselves, together we can build a future where suffering is prevented amongst all our loved ones.
