SCREEN FOR A SCREEN 2019

How You Saving Lives:

  

6 years of personal patient drive and the experience of a Professor created an effective prototype that has shown huge progress, potential and results.  Cancer Heroes has proven itself in the field of Early Detection and will apply it even further during 2019 with two projects.


 The initial Analysis Phase proved the value of the development of an effective Head and Neck Cancer Early Detection Program for the South African Public Sector. This will now be rolled out in various sites across the country which will include public hospitals, rural clinics, dental surgeries, community centres and even peoples homes.

 

The key to the success of this program lies in the program design and simplicity it follows in “up-scaling” the treatment plans for individuals. This has to work in conjunction with all the levels in our public health sector.


Over the next 6 months and in conjunction with stakeholders we will attempt to fast track the implementation of elementary programs that will lead into a formal early detection program catering for our medically disenfranchised and poorest of poor. 


The use of home language education via multiple media forms including Printed, Radio and Television will be key to this program. This may be via current Health Programs, Education Programming and IsiZulu and IsiXhosa Channels already established.


It is with great thanks to ICAP for the donation from their 2018 Charity Day which will initiate the program and assist in the further expansion throughout South Africa.


The "SCREEN FOR A SCREEN" Tax Rebate program will allow us to reach 20 000 people and thus every donation is appreciated and will be part of this project. 

How to Donate

The  "SCREEN FOR A SCREEN " program is a donation of R 25 000.00 for a Section 18A SARS Tax Rebate where companies and or individuals keep more of their money from Tax disbursements  to SARS.
