cancer patient non profit organisation breast cancer patients benefits fund dr sameer kaul dr feroz pasha

Breast cancer has become the number one killer of women in Asian cities and not just the western world anymore. The disease is a stubborn one but what complicates the problem for our people is inadequate and contrasted public infrastructure, inadequate finances being due to ever rising costs of treatment and immature health insurance. It is impossible for most patients to avail comprehensive treatment for their disease.

It was this that prompted a group of sensitive professionals drawn from different walks of life, headed by Dr. Sameer Kaul, a renowned cancer specialist, to create this organization in September 2004. ‘Breast Cancer Patients Benefit Foundation’ has since been active in the field of providing succour to financially constrained cancer patients in India and our neighbouring countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The primary function is to facilitate optimal treatment by collecting funds for the same. We try achieving this by sponsored mega event organizations like ‘DilkiAwaz’, ‘Ehsaas’, ‘The Awakening’, ‘Creafash’ and public donations from sensitive individuals and the socially responsible corporate sector. These funds are used to provide duly subsidized/free treatment to ill affording cancer patients cutting across red tape – caste, colour and creed.

We believe that early detection and prompt treatment can result in 90% survival over next 5 years and this is one of our biggest reasons and aim in setting up the BCPBF.

Our treatment centres are inundated with cancer specialists grappling to provide optimum care.
Harsh reality however is that despite these facilities, a very high percent of patients have no access to optimal treatment. Inadequate finances standing in the way of multi-modality treatment of acceptable standards, protocols and the lack of awareness are major factors. The foundation aims to make a difference in the lives of these individuals.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES & AIMS OF THE SOCIETY ARE:

  • To subsidies the mammoth cost of treatment of Breast Cancer for the needy and poor patients and raise funds for the same.
  • To help early detection of and to raise funds for the said purpose.
  • To set up detection centres, hospitals, pathological labs and radiation/ chemotherapy centres in rural and urban areas for treatment of breast cancer patients and raise funds for the same.
  • To convince pharmaceutical companies to provide drugs for breast cancer treatment at concessional rates/free of charge for our poor and needy patients.
Assistance in form of Central Drug Repository

The ‘Central Drug Repository’ is our most vital program – which brings us as friends to Jammu & Kashmir State. This program is an honest attempt at providing subsidized/free lifesaving cancer drugs to Below Poverty Line Patients. Participants include nationally acclaimed experts in various fields of cancer like policy.

How to Help

The primary aim of this young but vibrant, committed group is to raise funds and distribute the same for treatment of cancer in the financially deprived sections of this population.

We have a fund titled ‘Breast Cancer Patients Benefit Fund’ under which we collect money and spend it on needy & poor patients of breast cancer.
Approximately 40 cancer patients have been treated from diagnosis to maintenance treatment, free of cost.
These patients, who approached us for financial help were evaluated by the foundation committee and found appropriate for funding. They were poor and needy and if they were not helped with funding they would have not opted for a treatment for their life-threatening cancers.

We believe it is our duty as doctors and as a part of this foundation to take our services and expertise across the society to those who need it and we hope you stand by our cause with maximum support.
