    Aarambh Palliative Cancer Care Center

    from Ahmednagar, Maharashtra


Hello, I am Pradeep Kakade founder of  Aarambh Palliative Cancer Care Center Ahmednagar. There is a story behind the start of Aarambh. My educational qualification is SSC. When I was is 10th Standard my Father had an accident and he passed away. He was in State Transport. So after his death, I got a job in ST as a conductor. When I was in Job, I have started organization swami Vivekanand Vidya Pratishthan and started English medium school for rural and tribal children. When all things are working good and fine, I got the news that our one of close relative detected with cancer and he was in his last stage. And Tata hospital remarked that there is no use of treatment so take him back to home. So with my family, I went there but when I
reached there the picture what I have seen, I get stuck and shocked. That Cancer patient's family member made one hut for him out of their house and they kept patient with the very bad and unhygienic condition. No one was there for curing for medicines. All around is bad odor and flies. On his body all around puss and maggots. That picture was
shocked by me throughout. Even though patients wife his son is all around no one is taking responsibility of taking care. Even though all family members are present still
there is no one taking care of what is patient don't have family members and relative. So I decided on that day to start something for these kinds of patients by making some activities on how we can try to make their last stage of life beautiful and healthy.

We are only palliative care center in Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra. In Ahmednagar city, there are three cancer hospitals but we are only one center. So many patients are visited. We are trying to give home care to most of them as we don't have adequate facility to admit all of them. Many of them are poor and can't afford post treatment cure. Our Palliative care center is equipped with 10 beds. Currently, There are five patients admitted and we are giving care regularly. For these patients, our daily expense is Rs. 2500 per patient/per day. We are giving care at free of cost to patients. Above expenses including Doctors Visiting Charges, Nursing charges, Tablets, Injections, Medicines, Pain relief drugs etc.
