“It’s time to get loud in colour and give Hope by planning for CANSA Shavathon 2018,” urges the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).
CANSA’s annual Shavathon has become the darling of South Africa’s fundraising events in support of a worthy cause. It will be staged for the 15th consecutive time in Langeberg Mall, Hartenbos Seefront and Mosselbaai Mall on 24 February 2018 and at workplaces from 26 February to 2 March 2018. Not only has the shaving or spraying of heads become symbolic gestures in support of cancer patients and cancer survivors, it continues to ease the strain experienced by patients who lose their hair while undergoing treatment. Solidarity for cancer patients and survivors can be shown by adults giving R50 and children, under the age of 12 years, giving R25.
“All funds raised help CANSA to continue delivering our care and support programmes. We also provide educational materials with information on how to lower the cancer risk and help provide access to early detection of cancer. Our CANSA Care Centres offer support in many forms to cancer patients, their families and anyone who wants to know more about the disease,” concludes Scholtz.
