Cancer buddies

Personal message

Some of you might know that a group of us are venturing back to Durban to run Comrades again and this year we would like to make a small difference to the lives of those living with Cancer. We have all been touched by this devastating disease in some way or another and often directly. 

Cancer buddies is a non-profit organisation that helps those suffering with cancer, in particular helping patients cope with the emotional stress of living with the disease.

We thought to help, we would dedicate our 2017 Comrades Up run to help raise much needed funds for this very worthy charity. 

We therefore appeal to our friends, fellow runners and cancer surivivors to sponsor us any amount that you are willing to so that we can make a small difference to those in need.

Please go to www.cancerbuddies.org.za

Cancer Buddies

Cancer Buddies Logo

Cancer Buddies is an organisation which offers support, information and guidance to those affected by cancer. It matches those newly diagnosed with cancer, to survivors who are trained to assist patients and their carers to deal with and heal through their cancer journey.     

It offers this free peer to peer buddy support network where cancer patients can interact with, receive practical advice, information, guidance and support from cancer survivors who have walked a path through their own cancer journey.

We are looking for Cancer Buddy Champions who have been touched by cancer in some way to raise funds for their favorite Cancer Buddies Projects or to enable the Cancer Buddies team to deliver more support for South Africans affected and suffering from the raw reality of a cancer diagnosis.
