CanCare is a not-for-profit evangelical organization that provides cancer patients and their carers of the Chinese community with holistic care to meet their physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs.

CanCare reaches out to all cancer patients and their carers of the Chinese community with love regardless of their religious beliefs.

CanCare is a modest organization when established in 2007. With the passage of time, it has gradually become a fully-fledged organization that adopts a holistic approach in supporting cancer patients and their families. We offer comprehensive services with an overriding objective of enhancing the general public their understanding of cancer. They include regular support group programs, visitation services, training courses as well as health talks and workshops that are open to the public and/or specific groups at various locations. “Life and Death education” program which explores the issue on death is also available to the public. We opt to help learners envisage the ending stage of life more rationally.

CanCare Centre (CanCare) Coronavirus Measures
