Kenya Cancer Association (KENCANSA) is a voluntary run non-profit making organization established in Kenya in 1995 after recognition that Cancer was emerging as a leading cause of death in the country. KENCANSA was officially registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in 2005 although it had existed previously as part of the Ministry of Health since the 1980s. We are a people-centric organization taking the lead in cancer elimination through awareness and support.
Under this program we provide meals to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy at the Kenyatta National Hospital and who for various reasons are unable to afford the proper diet needed for chemotherapy patients.
Relay for life is an annual fund raising event of the American Cancer Society that aims to raise funds for cancer patient support. We are one of three organisations in Africa licensed to organise and host this annual event
