Living with Cancer was established by Belinda Wagner in 2017, after being diagnosed with rare cancer.
People who are impacted by cancer need a platform where they can share their experiences, support each other, gain courage and inspire hope.
It is a platform where the cancer community can connect and have a place to go for emotional support and information throughout their cancer journey. Connect with other members, share experiences, ask questions about what to expect, find advice on things like diet, natural remedies, exercise and ways to cope.
“In South Africa, approximately 120 000 people are diagnosed with cancer annually. Advances in cancer research, detection, and treatment show that cancer can be beaten and should not be seen as a death sentence. However, I believe that people who are impacted by cancer must also have a place to go where they can learn about their diagnosis and have access to a safe network to share their emotions and experiences, support each other, and gain courage and inspire hope. That’s my goal with Living with Cancer.”

The Legacy of Love Memorial Wall for Those Who Fought Cancer is a heartfelt tribute and digital sanctuary created to honour the cherished memories of individuals who bravely battled cancer. At Living with Cancer, our mission extends beyond providing support to patients and families; it encompasses preserving the legacies of those who have touched our lives. This virtual memorial serves as a platform where people can share their stories, memories, and reflections of loved ones lost to cancer. By submitting their stories to our blog, individuals can immortalise the enduring impact of their loved ones' lives and offer solace to others who may be navigating similar journeys. As a non-profit cancer support group dedicated to closing the gap and combating the cancer crisis in South Africa, we recognise the importance of preserving these legacies of love as a beacon of hope and inspiration for future generations. Together, through storytelling and remembrance, we strive to cultivate a community of support, resilience, and compassion in the face of adversity.
