1.How can I contribute towards someone fighting against cancer?
Cancer is a life threatening disease and impacts the life of the affected individual. Cancer treatment is quite costly and often drains one out of finances. Several individuals are deprived of treatment due to lack of sufficient funds. Financial donation made towards treatment of cancer is a thoughtful way of enabling someone in fighting against cancer. Moreover, you can also donate blood and artificial hair for cancer patients.
2.How can I donate?
You may send cheque or make online donations through hospital website (www.rgcirc.org, firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also send gifts for cancer patient or organize a small celebration for them on special occasions such as birthdays. You can decide about making one time or recurring donations by filling the online donation form.
3.Where does my money go?
Money donated by you goes to a fund created for financing surgical intervention and therapy (Chemo or radio) of cancer patients as per the needs. The money is also utilized in campaigning for creating awareness against cancer. You can also specify the purpose of your donation. Your money would go in treatment of a cancer patient or rehabilitating him or cancer research or development of infrastructure within RGCI&RC. You can also adopt a cancer patient.
4.How would I benefit by making donations?
The financial donations towards cancer are exempted under the Indian Income Tax Act 1961. Moreover, the pleasure one gets after helping and contributing towards the noble cause is priceless and cannot be compared with any kind of benefit.
5.Can I help cancer patients through organ or tissue donation?
Organ transplantation is not the best way to treat someone of cancer. Firstly, it is really hard to find the appropriate donors. Moreover, only primary cancer can be treated through organ transplantation, in which cancer is restricted to a specific organ. In case it has spread to other parts of the body, transplantation is not a good idea. Organ transplantation is followed by various immunosuppressant drugs to be taken by the recipients in order to prevent organ rejection. This further adds up to the weakness, as a cancer patient needs a strong immune system to help fight against it.
