A quarter century of hope

30 June 2017 | Gemeenskap
The Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) in association with Sanlam, is launching their 25 Years of Hope project.
The project celebrates a quarter of a century in which the two institutions have been working together to raise awareness about cancer prevention in Namibia.
This follows in the light of the Sanlam Cancer Golf Challenge that also turned 25 this year.
“During the last quarter century, Sanlam has invested millions into initiatives aimed at preventing cancer, supporting research and assisting those that are afflicted by this disease in our country,” said Rolf Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of CAN.
“We want to celebrate this partnership by sharing the stories of survivors and how together, we have inspired hope.”
He went on to say that CAN will host a variety of activities to narrate stories of hope, especially via social media.
“The journey of cancer is a treacherous one – it has disruptive emotional, financial and social qualities that easily break the human spirit. By sharing the stories of patients with whom we have travelled this tricky road, we aim to encourage those who are sadly embarking anew in a cancer fighting journey.”
According to Wessel Kotze, coordinator of the Sanlam Cancer Golf Challenge in Namibia, the project wants to highlight the positive experiences that come from being faced with the disease.
