Momentum Force cancer support

Momentum Force is a community of cancer survivors, medical experts and financial advisers who, through lived experiences, share their stories of hope, inspiration and encouragement.

The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) revealed in 2020 that approximately 19.4 million women aged 15 years and older were at risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the number one cancer affecting women in South Africa.

Because of disturbing statistics like these, Momentum has, for the last 10 years, partnered with the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital to accelerate research and awareness for breast cancer treatment in South Africa.
