Cancer Awareness Day, Blind SA (28 October 2021)

October month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The department of Health in general, and other relevant stakeholders are educating women on breast cancer, symptoms and possible prevention.


Blind SA is taking serious strides to empower blind and partially sighted women as they are mothers in families and leaders in communities.  It is our responsibility to facilitate workshops that educate women on their health issues as they in turn, educate their families and communities.  This Breast Cancer Awareness Month is not different.


Blind SA will be hosting a virtual Cancer Awareness Day on 28 October 2021 from 10h00 to 12h30.  Speakers have been invited to address women on breast, cervical and childhood Cancers.

All are invited to this important day, including men as they are the ones looking after

women when they get sick because of this killer disease.  We urge all to start joining at 09h15 and be connected by 09h55 at the latest to minimise disruption when the programme commences.  We also urge participants to minimise typing on the chat box as it disturbs visually impaired participants when the device starts reading messages on the box.


Let’s join hands fighting for a Cancer free South Africa
