Chicks Conquering Cancer Inc. help people affected by cancer by:

 

  • Providing information, relating to cancer and the treatment thereof, to patients, their family and friends.
  • Offering emotional support to patients and their family.
  • Offering practical support to patients and their families, where possible.
  • Offering financial assistance to patients where appropriate.


All this is done to ensure that the patient and their family will cope with the disease and its treatment.

 

How we work:

Chicks Conquering Cancer Inc. is a Non-Profit Organization and is funded by sponsorships, donations and fund raising events.

Emotional support and sharing of information is done via Telephone and Web Conference, with home and hospital visits, as well as planned visits to the Oncology Centers. Information is also shared by means of presentations done by some of our members with the assistance of professionals.

Practical support is provided by connecting the patient to the correct people (oncologists and suppliers) or taking care of certain arrangements, e.g. doctor appointments, accommodation or dealing with medical aids on behalf of the patient. From time to time, weekend breakaways are also arranged for the patient and their family

Where financial assistance for patients is required, a fund raising drive or event will be held.

To ensure the on-going operation of Chicks Conquering Cancer general fund raising events are also held.
