Campaigning for Cancer is a patient advocacy organisation formed in 2008 to give a voice to South African cancer patients and those affected by cancer.


The pioneer of South African cancer patient advocacy, Campaigning for Cancer continues to advocate for the promotion and protection of the rights of 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 advocacting for policy change that will affect all of society.


The dictionary defines advocacy as: “The act of pleading or arguing in favour of something, such as a cause, idea, or policy; active support.”
