"It was about 10 years ago when I lost my father to cancer and he fought really really hard. We all tried our best to save him but cancer is unsparing. I watched him every single day in the hospital in pain and suffering. I don’t think any child or any family member should ever suffer anything like this because it is one of the worst things that you’ll ever see in your life." - Sunny Leone.
Sunny lost her father due to cancer and has been actively involved with Cancer Patients Aid Association Digital campaigns ever since the pandemic began as she understands the struggle.
Underprivileged cancer patients from rural parts of Maharashtra like Achalpur in Amravati, Udgir in Latur, Barshi in Solapur, etc. are stuck in Mumbai for their treatment. With the current scenario, there is a high risk of infection if they travel. Their immunity is so low that they become prime candidates, and are at high risk to contract the virus. They have nowhere to go, they have no money, no food, no shelter.
As per the above cost sheet, CPAA is in need of INR 1,80,00,000/- for helping 1200 patients with only medical support for the next 3 months besides other expenses like supply of hygiene & food kits.
