About Us

Cancer Heroes was founded in remembrance all the Cancer Heroes that have gone before us. They gave us the strength and perseverance to make a difference in our lives while finding innovative ways to help others less fortunate that are medically disenfranchised by design.

 

As a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) we aim to stand tall in support of all that are affected by cancer, including patients, families, care givers, medical staff, paramedical staff and doctors, while finding innovative ways to reduce the risk and infection of cancer. 

We aim is to support the majority, more than 75% Black Families including the Indian and Coloured Communities that are truly the previously disadvantaged as per the Annex 500(A) Benefit Factor Matrix of the BEE Codes of Good Practice of the Republic of South Africa.

Cancer Heroes' founding statement is based on the principle that all its relationships, commercial and non-commercial will be utilised to develop successful methods of promoting its objectives, attempting wherever possible to include as many individuals requiring assistance, especially the poor and needy and medically disenfranchised. These objectives are held within the 4 divisions in Cancer Heroes for Education, Early Detection, Advocacy and Support. They are run as independent deliverables and from time to time are combined for specific outcomes.

VISION
