Indian Cancer Society was established in 1951 by Dr. D.J. Jussawalla and Mr. Naval Tata as India's first voluntary, non-profit, National Organization for Awareness, Detection, Cure and Survivorship of those affected with this disease with the vision "To be the Beacon of Hope against cancer." Indian Cancer Society has been doing sterling work in fighting cancer across India. It has been and continues to be the beacon of hope for thousands of underprivileged cancer patients. Most of the patients come to us from all over the country and can’t afford two meals a day. In such cases undergoing treatment is beyond their capacity. The society is entirely dependent on public support for its various activities concerned with financing the treatment and rehabilitation of cancer patients and for spreading cancer awareness and its early detection.
The primary activities of Indian Cancer Society are:
- Creating nationwide awareness of cancer, its risk factors, preventive measures, encouraging regular checkups, treatment options and survivorship.
-Providing for early detection of cancer through cancer detection centers and mobile cancer detection camps across India, especially for the underprivileged.
-Providing funds for the treatment of cancer for poor cancer patients across India .
-Providing support during and after treatment to poor cancer patients through accommodation, rehabilitation, and survivor support groups.
-Gathering and collating data through the population based cancer registry for Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and Aurangabad (ICS is the only NGO to run a cancer registry), and providing analytic and projected reports on the incidence of cancer.
-Providing a medium for the dissemination of information and research findings to the medical fraternity through the Indian Journal of Cancer.
