According to the National Cancer Registry Programme, 1 in 9 Indians develops cancer during their lifetime. Even if cancer is identified at an early stage, 50% of patients stop visiting hospitals after two or three cycles of chemotherapy due to the high cost of treatment.
Teens for Cancer Patients is an international youth-led organization dedicated to battling cancer. Since launching in September 2021, TCP has served over 400 persons in 9 countries with 10+ chapters and has fundraised over 1 lakh rupees for financially sensitive patients.
TCP has partners like the Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Center (lead by Dr Kannan, a Padma Shri Recipient), Iksha Foundation.
Donations to TCP include sanitary pads to orphanages, chemotherapy treatment of poverty-stricken patients and food for cancer affected children.
TCPXOakridge is a subset of the NGO Teens for Cancer Patients. We are a school club at Oakridge Internation school that is passionate about the cause, and to the best of our abilities, want to help better the lives of cancer patients. We are going to do this by donating money to cancer hospitals in India so that cancer patients can receive the best possible treatment. We want to make a difference for this - help cancer patients who are going through so much emotional and physical pain during their treatments. Donate to us so that we can help them.
