Cancer Support: Sahyog
Celebrating 25 years of service in 2016
Cancer Sahyog is a support group for people living with cancer that has been working with ICS since 1991. Our volunteers attend clinics at 10 leading hospitals in Delhi/NCR.
- Cancer Sahyog is the founding organization of an all-India movement of Cancer Care organizations.
- It was founded by a cancer survivor and all of the volunteer members have personally experienced cancer.
- Volunteers actively listen, share their experiences, and provide literature, helpful suggestions, and tips regarding the side effects of treatment. They also facilitate communication between patients, families, and health professionals.
- Most important, volunteers, all of whom have had a close personal encounter with cancer, offer hope.
- ICS Cancer Sahyog’s annual Seminar addresses important issues for cancer survivors.
- Cancer Survivors Day is a Celebration of Life, emphasizing the beauty of life after cancer. It is celebrated on the second Saturday in February at Delhi’s fun hot-spot Dilli Haat.
- In 2015-16, ICS Delhi was the Implementation Partner of the NDTV Fortis Cancerthon for Child Patients, which raised Rs 72 lakhs for children with cancer. Funds are distributed equitably to 38 children in Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Chennai. The Fund continues to accept funds and to support this all-India initiative.
