Act for Cancer is a team of experienced and self-motivated professionals who provide support and guidance to cancer patients. National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research (NICPR), a premier institute under Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has published couple of following statements on their website: (http://cancerindia.org.in/cp/index.php/know-about-cancer/cancer-factsheet)
Cancer is the second most common cause of death in India (after cardiovascular disease).
More women in India die from cervical cancer than in any other country.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in India and accounts for about a quarter of all cancers in women in Indian cities.
The average age for breast cancer in India is almost a decade lower than that in the West.
It is quite evident from above statements that cancer is spreading its wings all across India; caste, status, gender and age group are no exception for it. In fact, in year 2014, 4.9 lakhs death were recorded due to cancer for both the genders. Act for Cancer is a social and professional commitment towards our society for keeping Hope Alive, even in the time of such critical illnesses. We feel, it is The Time to take a step towards holistic health care (mind, body and spirit connection) to conquer the fear and pain associated with cancers. We provide guidance and support to patients and caregivers with non-invasive healing techniques/therapies that are already a part of integrated approach for cancers in Western world. These therapies work very well with conventional cancer treatments.
