To create a supportive structure for cancer patients and their families, restoring dignity to those who have lost hope and uniting all cancer patients in our community,
to encourage extended support and awareness, hence “we give hope with heart to our fighters and honour those who fought”.
To be a source of education, support and care for the cancer-afflicted members of our community.
The Laudium Cancer Care Group was formed by a small group of volunteers in September 1986, who shared a common goal of offering a support system to cancer patients and their families and to help them enjoy a better quality of life.
The Group's services have been rendered with 100% community support and funding for the past 30 years. Volunteers have provided supportive services including
emotional support, transport, financial assistance, and the provision of (limited) medical care by an employed nurse.
We welcome the generous support of the community in all our fundraising events. This multicultural organisation offers support to patients in Laudium, Cladius,
Erasmia, Lotus Gardens, Pretoria West, Valhalla, Heuweloord and other parts of Centurion
Our team comprises of a governing board and a dynamic group of volunteers. There are 14 volunteers and one staff member (an enrolled nurse).
There are so many patients in our community whom in addition to having cancer, face financial strain which aggravates the status of their illness.
Our group of volunteers have recognised this and we try to reach as many patients as we can to make sure they get the correct knowledge and support as we are able to offer.
Administration of our patient lists, financial administration, organising day cares, cancer awareness programmes at schools and in our community and fundraising, are all planned and executed by our volunteers throughout the year to keep our organisation afloat.
