Chandigarh, 01st Feb, 2020:- In an endeavor to provide holistic help to cancer patients, around 27 donors in the memory of their loved ones, who lost their lives to cancer, gave financial aid of Rs 10,000 each to 24 recipients at Sahayta Cancer Kendra, Sector 15 B, here.

The event is being organized by Sahayta Charitable Welfare Society to mark the celebration of 'World Cancer Day' at its premises.

Speaking on the occasion, Ajay Tulli, Administrator, Sahayta Charitable Welfare Society said that the treatment of cancer is expensive, which breaks the backbone of the patient & his or her family financially. Today from this platform the donors, who have lost their loved ones to the disease and understand the acute pain of the patients & their families have given the much needed financial assistance to them.

Renu Saigal, President, Sahayta Charitable Welfare Society & who is also a cancer survivor said that it is good to see the people coming forth in this great cause to help cancer patients and their families. All the recipients who were given financial aid were from the economically weaker section.

She added that we should create more awareness campaigns on a large scale, so that the cancer gets detected at an early stage. We also need to inspire more people from different strata of society to come forward and help alleviate the pain of cancer being suffered by needy patients.

Apart from providing financial help to needy cancer patients Sahayta Charitable Welfare Society also observes 'Pink October' as Breast & Cervix Cancer Awareness Month, and organizes a 'Breast Cancer Walkathon' every year.

The society's aim is to generate awareness about the prevention of cancer and it holds events and interventions on a regular basis to fulfill the objective.

It is noteworthy that Sahayta Charitable Welfare Society since inception has helped over 2000 needy cancer patients.
