Egypt: CanSurvive

Member’s description

CanSurvive is one of Egypt’s leading groups for cancer patients and survivors. As treatments improve, more people are living with cancer, yet patients and those who care about them face many challenges. We hope to be a source of support and inspiration for all those whose lives are affected by cancer. We want to be there to help alleviate some of the physical and emotional stress associated with cancer. CanSurvive is registered as a non-profit non-government organization with the Ministry of Social Affairs.
