A collaborative program has been set-up with Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai, since 2017 to support chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer patients.
The aim of the project is to support breast cancer patients with no insurance or finances to get chemotherapy treatment.
The Cancer Institute (WIA) (also known as Adyar Cancer Institute) is a non-profit cancer treatment and research center based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The Cancer Institute (WIA) was established in the year 1954.
Patient group: A low socio-economic group of cancer patients from all over India are admitted to the hospital. The surgical cost is covered by the government.
Implementation: A Maina Foundation account has been set-up for the benefit of women in need of chemotherapy treatment after breast cancer surgery. The tracking system employed for the program by the hospital identifies patients with no financial resources to get chemotherapy treatment from Maina Foundation funds.
“…..The Maina Foundation has kindly agreed to support chemotherapy for 20 breast cancer patients annually. We are grateful to Maina Foundation for their support and generosity. We will be honored to be partners with Maina Foundation as a beneficiary organization”.
Dr. V. Shanta, Chairman Adyar Cancer Institute
