Kids Kicking Cancer South Africa NPC
Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) is an organization new to South Africa, supported by a 20 year footprint in the USA and with current programmes in 48 hospitals across 5 countries serving many hundreds of young cancer patients.
Our programme focuses on using the inherent power of martial arts to empower children and youth in their fight against cancer and other life threatening diseases. By way of facilitation and instruction with highly qualified Sensei's, our beneficiaries learn to harness the force of a meditative mindset coupled with controlled, focused breathing to deliver "Power, Peace and Purpose", a method which is proven to reduce anxiety and ease pain. Instruction takes place within the context of martial arts classes and bedside interventions.
At present KKC is active in provincial public hospitals in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town and hopes to expand its footprint to regions where cancer sufferers have limited access to treatment and additional support.
