The birth of Can-Sir came about in 2008 through Ismail-Ian Fife’s (a Cancer survivor) own life experience with Cancer. He shared his vision and ideas with a fellow Cancer survivors who then realised the difficulty men in general were experiencing when it came to Cancer treatment, coping with Cancer in their family lives, coping with Cancer in general, not openly talking about Cancer due to either, being ill informed, uncaring medical staff, cultural differences or the stigma attached to Cancer.
Can-Sir, South Africa’s premier men’s cancer group, is an innovative and exciting NPO, formed to be the organisation of choice when it comes to CANCER Awareness, Education, Support to those suffering with cancer and their families, to emphasize the importance of regular examinations and early detection of Cancer and to Advocate for men’s health by being the voice of men with Cancer.
Can-Sir is a proud member of the “Global Prostate Cancer Alliance” partner to MALECARE International and Cancer Buddies who set about developing volunteer peer to peer counselling guidelines that are aligned with international protocols. Through this partnership, Can-Sir benefits from one of the most established volunteer psycho-social(support) programmes in the country. Can-Sir’s focus is mainly on the “Shy cancers”; Prostate, Testicular, Male Breast Cancer and Colorectal Cancer as they are the number one forms of Cancer affecting young and older men. However…, Can-Sir does focus on other Cancers affecting men and their care-givers across South Africa and it has to be noted that Can-Sir‘s campaigns are NOT limited to men only as we do have a huge network from which to pull resources.
