Most chronic cancer can’t be cured, but with early diagnosis, and timely actions, it can be controlled for months and even years. There are many needy and poor who lose their lives due to late detection, and so it’s important to take a step before it is too late. We have curated this list of cancer care NGOs in India, that are saving lives by giving low-cost/free treatment. Check them out and donate to help the needy!

Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases, that has over 100 different types and requires therapies and treatments that are not only expensive but also risky. According to National Cancer Registry Programme, India’s cancer burden could increase from 1.39 million to 1.57 million by 2025. It is a piece of alarming news, and we must be prepared for it. On the occasion of World Rose Day, which is celebrated in dedication to the welfare of cancer patients, we decided to talk about the cancer care NGOs in India who are not only helping the needy fight this deadly disease financially but also supporting them by providing livelihood opportunities.
