I'm Alyssa, a participant in Happy Returns and pledge to raise funds for CPAA to fight cancer. Those whose lives are touched by cancer know the turmoil it can cause as the name is enough to spread fear.
As many people cannot afford the treatment or have to quit the treatment in between because of insufficient funds end up succumbing to the disease. As a vigilant citizen and on humanitarian grounds, I pledge to raise funds and try my best to help CPAA(Cancer Patients Aid Association) to create an impact and help patients suffering from cancer in their way to a better future.
Why Happy Returns -
Every year, lakhs of Indians are devastated by the news of cancer. On an average, more than 1,300 Indians succumb to the dreaded disease every day. With new cancer cases or its incidence in India estimated to grow by 25% by 2020 (according to the cancer registry released by the Indian Council of Medical Research).
Women, especially, are being increasingly diagnosed with cancer. cancer has become one of the major causes of death occurring in the country as the average cost of cancer treatment costs around anywhere between 5 to 20 lakhs and is not very affordable for the poor and many people.
At Cancer Patients Aid Association’s Happy Returns we want to show people that cancer is not the story of someone’s life but rather just a chapter. There’s nothing in life that human spirit can’t overcome. Cancer is often a lone struggle but we at CPAA believe that each one can make a difference by Supporting and showing Solidarity with those affected, small steps today could mean a thousand leaps tomorrow...You can be a part of this campaign by Donating Funds towards fighting Cancer for those affected, Cancer may have started the fight but let’s all get together to make a difference and finish it.
Cancer Patients Aid Association is a non-profit organization that has envisioned a nation where patients face the illness with the hope of living their lives to the fullest, providing them with the means to reclaim their identities. CPAA attacks the trauma patients experience holistically-physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
CPAA focuses on an all-round treatment, not only physical support, but also psychological care for the patient and the family, lifting them from despondency, giving them hope and assuring them that there is an entire community supporting them.
CPAA has impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people by following the holistic philosophy of Total Management of Cancer for 50 years.
