2024 Cura Cancer Cover

Cancer kills more people every year than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. According to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANCA), one out of every four South Africans will be challenged with the diagnoses of cancer of him or herself or of a family member or friend.

With the diagnosis of cancer comes fear and trauma, but also the immense challenge to fight the disease, both mentally and physically. The patient needs to focus on all positive aspects of the recuperating process.

The least of their worries should be the financial strain that comes with inflated costs related to oncology treatment. Cura’s Cancer Cover is designed to assist you with these unexpected expenses.
