If there’s life, there is hope.
– Stephen Hawking
If there is Samrohana, there is hope to heal and to grow over. ‘Being in Together‘ to heal and overcome cancer has been the guiding principle of Samrohana
Samrohana is a non-governmental not for profit organization, which is engaged in prevention and early detection of cancer. Providing care, counselling and rehabilitation to persons fighting cancer and their families with focus on helping them to navigate towards wellness through various activities is also an important aspect of our activities.
Samrohana also counsels, guides and educates them towards healthy living through interactive approach. The intent is to raise awareness against cancer though patient education, advocacy groups, webinars, tele consultations and meetings.
As a community initiative, Samrohana is a proactive community platform on a mission to connect, network and support patients, their caregivers, doctors and allied medical fraternity associated with cancer.
It has been my long-term desire to start an organisation that would be dedicated to the care of cancer survivors beyond the merely treating then medically. Over the years of practice, I have seen the difficulties that the patients and the care givers (together called survivors) go through once cancer is diagnosed. It starts with the anxiety of diagnosis. Very often I have seen families which get affected because of the diagnosis and are in dire need of counselling. Over the years I have noted that this kind of an organised support mechanism is not available to the patients and it look from pillar to post and are unable to find the right kind of solution. At Samrohana we want to look into this aspect of survivor care.
I also noticed that there is very little support for the long term complications and side effects related to the treatment of cancer. The survivors usually don’t have any clue about the long term side effects and how to deal with those side effects. We intend to start various programs to educate the cancer survivors to deal with these problems and find solution for them whenever possible .
One of the very important goals of Samrohana is to heavily invested our time in Cancer awareness. The incidence of cancer has increased over the years and many of these cases are preventable. Also awareness about cancer will help in early diagnosis and thus give a better chance of cure for the patient. I have personally conducted many awareness sessions and this effort of mine will continue under theumbrella of Samrohana.
Though these are initial goals, overtime we would also like to give financial support to the patients in their earning age group. The earning age group is a big concern for usbecause it is an ignored by most of the organisations. But, these are individuals who are very important for the society . There are many organizations that support the children with cancer.However, there is very little empathy and financial support for those individuals in their earning age group who get cancer who could be only earning member or may have young children to take care.
We want to make a small difference to the society.

SAMROHANA FOUNDATION is a group that works in helping those who are diagnosed with cancer, and their caregivers to deal with the upheaval of the diagnosis and the treatment. Connecting them with other people who have undergone the same turbulence of anxiety and a sense of defeat, who have learned to manage the treatment protocol and its aftermath and also putting them in touch with a counsellor to help them with deeper issues.
Emotional support helps them understand the numerous issues that come in the wake of this diagnosis. This is done by connecting individuals with similar cancers and brings them closer to reality. When patients know that they are not alone, their anxiety reduces and compliance increases. This forum also helps in providing medically correct information, thus avoiding volumes of misinformation available.
The incidence of cancer is increasing worldwide. Cancer is the 3rd in the list of causes of death. Fortunately many cancers can be prevented.
