Cancer Heroes? Education Early Detection, Advocacy and Support for those affected by Cancer. We building a Mobile App training platform for those that would like to learn how to assist the elderly through their journey of cancer to ensure quality of life and dignity, with love and respect! This funding will unlock another door to help our people of South Africa that so desperately need it. Why donate, why not, what if when you did not have anyone to care for you when you got cancer and you were to frail to even make a cup of tea for yourself, what then? Change a life through a few cents that make a lot of sense!
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 others lives that are starting their cancer journey’s while assisting others to reach clarity on their health status.
As a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) we aims to stand tall in support of all that are affected by cancer, including patients, families, carers, medical staff, paramedical staff and doctors, while finding innovative ways to reduce the risk and infection of cancer.
Our vision is put into actionable programs, with a focus on stewardship initiatives for all aspects of the South African ever increasing Cancer incidents, while creating activities to benefit society as a whole. All these associations will be entered into to explore alternative methods of promoting its objectives, attempting wherever possible to include as many individuals requiring assistance, especially the poor and needy and medically disenfranchised.
Cancer Heroes’ mission is to create value to all through the delivery of clear and consistent operational focus while applying a holistic, efficient operating model of disciplined, efficient and cost-effective capital management to enable delivery of its founding statements while creating an approach of value-accretive growth to attain these goals.
We will attain it through maintaining the organisation's main objectives which are philanthropic purposes of Education, Early Detection, Advocacy and Support, and will attain these aims through the application of:
- Education initiatives
- Early Detection Campaigns
- Raise public awareness through Media Campaigns
- Treatment and Rehabilitative support
