“Volunteers come in all different shapes and sizes and there are various tasks that need to be done. We need volunteers who can help at our registration points, to help spray and shave hair,” said Maria Scholtz, Cansa’s head of sustainability.

“Volunteers not only help to fight cancer through active involvement in our health awareness campaigns and national projects but also gain from the experience by working with a number of mentors, learning leadership skills and meeting new people who enhance their lives, as well as those of their families.

“Volunteers work under the guidance of Cansa staff, and many Cansa volunteers are people who have overcome cancer and choose to help others fight the disease.”
