"I am very excited to work with Indian Cancer Society to scale up the operations and reach out to millions of deserving patients. We have to look at how to downstage cancer by detecting it early using technology. Technology is the best way to reduce the cost and reach out to millions. Looking forward to work with you and to make this world a better place to live in."
Cancer Institute (W.I.A) Chennai, is privileged to be associated with Indian Cancer Society (ICS).
Over the last 6 decades we have strived hard to provide the state of art treatment to the
underprivileged without any social or economic divide. This has been made easier by the generosity of ICS whose
funding has helped us to fulfill the needs of many patients.
Over the last 3 years, the financial assistance from ICS is Rs.2.7 Crores which has supported 120 patients.
This funding has been used for providing bone marrow transplantation, limb salvage surgery,
many major surgeries, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
The unique feature of the funding from ICS is the promptness with which the funds are released.
This has helped us in treating patients without delay. We are proud to say that we have
not refused “state of art treatment” to any of the patients who have come seeking help.
Department of Medical Oncology SKIMS, puts on record with the deepest sense of gratitude and thanks to
Indian Cancer Society for their financial assistance to genuine needy and under privileged patients of various
malignancies to undergo their primary treatment. This helping hand has infused new hope and life into these
patients who otherwise would not afford such costly affair. This celestial step has facilitated their access
to various sophisticated and high end investigations that has optimized their management.
It would be unethical, not to laud the cooperation, courtesy and the continuity the officials of ICS exhibit while
handling such cases as far as official work is concerned.
They stand through thick and thin, round the clock with Dr. Burhan from this Department for this human Endeavour.
“The Christian Medical College, Vellore has been striving to provide excellent, affordable care to patients who come
from all over the country.Patients who come from the poorer and vulnerable strata of society are preferentially afforded
the best possible treatment. Partnering with the Indian Cancer Society in providing funding for curable cancers has
tremendously increased the number of such patients receiving treatment. They go home with a satisfied smile and
much gratitude, knowing that they have beaten the dreaded disease and have been looked after in the best way possible.
Thank you ICS and all your donor funding partners for boosting our ability to deliver such treatments.”
“Indian Cancer Society’s Cancer Cure Fund is one of the most innovative ideas to
help & support cancer patients in India. It will not be an exaggeration, if I say
this is quite innovative globally, that investors would put in funds and this fund
will be utilized for poor patients and they would get some tax benefits out of that.
What is unique about this fund is that it has a shortest turnaround time. Unless
the funds are available the treatment cannot begin and these funds are immediately
made available by Indian Cancer Society’s Cancer Cure Fund. This has reduced abandonment
of treatment by more than 50% of patients.”
“It is indeed a great initiative. This kind of ventures would surely bring smile
on the faces of many cancer patients, who found it difficult to meet their ends.
RCC, Trivandrum is glad to be a part of this and hope that this venture may inspire
more and more people to extend their help and support to the poor and needy cancer
May god torrentially shower all the blessings on all of you who are a part of this
Children with Leukemia in particular can be cured with modern treatment and to turn
away a child who can benefit from this treatment just because the family does not
have the resources is indeed sad. I am extremely grateful as Director of Tata Medical
Centre, to the Indian Cancer Society for helping us to a very large extent to be
able to provide life saving curative treatment for children with cancer.
“I do not quite qualify to be called a donor though that was what I took myself
to be until I saw your video. The true donors are institutions like yours whose
members donate their soul and energy to reach out to the distressed on the ground.
May God be with you all”
