Graeme's 50th

Graeme's 50th

Personal message

I'm turning fifty!

I've been on various treatments for Hodgkin's Lymphoma since 2012. I was fortunate enough to have a very strong support group of family and friends to help me through this terrifying, depressing and debilitiating ordeal.

To celebrate my 50th birthday this year, instead of birthday presents I would love it if you would consider a donation to Campaigning 4 Cancer.

They are a wonderful organistion who make a real difference to the lives of patients in South Africa. They have set up the first patient advocacy group in South Africa (of which I am a founder member) and in a short time the group has received training and insight into many aspects of healthcare in South Africa. Our aim is to give valuable insight about the reality of this illness to medical schemes, government, pharmaceutical companies and others, from a patient's perspective, so that we can have a say over how we are treated.

Campaigning 4 Cancer

Campaigning For Cancer fights for your rights and the rights of your loved ones. The definition of advocacy is: "The act of pleading or arguing in favour of something, such as a cause, idea, or policy.” Campaigning For Cancer is pioneering cancer advocacy in South Africa. This NGO lobbies for the promotion and protection of the rights of cancer patients and those affected by cancer with regard to policy, healthcare costs and healthcare delivery. Campaigning for Cancer does this on an individual patient level - changing one life at a time - by providing people with the knowledge and tools to see their treatment process through; as well as on a larger scale - by noting issues highlighted by these individual cases and lobbying for policy change that will affect all of society. Campaigning for Cancer will serve all South Africans regardless of age, sex, gender, insurance or health status, marital status, disability, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, conscience, belief, education, social or economic background.

Campaigning For Cancer

Campaigning For Cancer Logo

Campaigning for Cancer is an advocacy organisation formed in 2008 to give South African cancer patients and those affected by cancer a voice. As a fully-fledged NGO, Campaigning for Cancer lobbies for the promotion and protection of the rights of cancer patients and those affected by cancer regarding healthcare policy, healthcare costs and access to healthcare. Campaigning for Cancer collaborates with the law firm Werksmans in a “walk together” approach to actively engage issues on cancer patients’ healthcare rights and healthcare law in general.
