ABOUT US

Cancer is a major threat worldwide; we in India are not immune. Like the rest of the world, it continues to be the second leading cause of mortality. The number of people diagnosed with cancer was 1157294 in 2018.

Science tries to keep abreast of Infirmity. Global efforts towards research, technological advances, financial availability and concern for the afflicted, exhibit heterogeneity. The crux of the problem remains inadequate finances for developing multimodality treatment of acceptable standards and protocols.


This is what motivated a small group of professionals from different walks of life to set up BCPBF The Cancer Foundation.

BCPBF is an equal opportunity support organization which comprises of well-known medical professionals, financial experts, entrepreneurs, gutsy survivors and philanthropic members of the community. Its sole purpose is to financially benefit those who cannot afford the treatment and to increase knowledge among those unaware of the disease, by reaching out to them through its programmes like ‘Knowledge at your doorstep’, awareness camps, public lectures, seminars, corporate health checks and other such events.

From The Chairman's Desk:

Women all over the world deserve the best hit at a killer that stalks them: breast cancer. But treatment is expensive, as are the psychological and physical effects of the deadly disease. Consequently, the majority of Indian women do not have the chance to combat breast cancer. This is where Breast Cancer Patients Benefit Foundation (BCPBF) comes in. As the future gives rise to better technology and intensified research, BCPBF wants to be the proverbial drop in the ocean of succor. Please lend us a hand to help disadvantaged women and other cancer patients who are unable to bear the financial burden of the killer disease.

Charter & Mission

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. 30% of all cancers in women occur in the breast and 1 in every 9 women will suffer from it sometime in her life. Early detection and prompt treatment result in a 90% survival rate over the next 5 years. Our treatment centers are inundated with patients and our professionals have been grappling to provide optimum care to all of them, regardless of their financial status. The harsh reality is, however, that despite these facilities, a great number of patients are financially disadvantaged and cannot access optimal treatment and protocols. There is also an alarmingly widespread lack of awareness and deep-seated shyness about ones body.The Foundation aims to create awareness, raise funds and make a difference in the lives of these hapless individuals.

Primary Objectives & Aim

  • To subsidize the mammoth cost of treatment of Cancer of needy and poor patients and raise funds for the same. To help early detection of cancer and to raise funds for the said purpose.
  • To set up detection centers, hospitals, nuclear science and pathological labs and radiation/ chemotherapy centers in rural and urban areas for treatment of cancer patients and raise funds for the same
  • To convince pharmaceutical companies to provide drugs for cancer treatment at concession rate/free of charge for poor and needy patients
  • To raise funds for at least four, fully-equipped mobile hospitals / screening vans for the northern, southern, western and eastern regions of India which will further facilitate our ongoing work of 25 years; that of conducting free cancer screening camps in the remotest areas of India and South Asia.
  • To intensify public-private participation in order to achieve maximum outreach to the poorest patients of all forms of cancer across India.
