Patients With Juvenile Cancer Are Housed At NGO Located In 9 Cities Across India
- St. Jude India Childcare Centres, which has locations in nine cities across India and is headquartered in Mumbai, celebrated its 15th anniversary.
- Mr. Anil Nair, CEO of St. Jude India ChildCare Centres stated that St. Jude India has provided a 'home away from home' for children undergoing cancer treatment since 2006.
Every year, over 3 lakh children are diagnosed with cancer, with around 50,000 new instances of child cancer being reported in India. Unlike adults, children have a good chance of beating cancer if symptoms are recognised early and adequate therapy and care is offered. Furthermore, the survival rate for some cancers is as high as 80 to 90%.
