Cancer rates in India are on the rise like never before, and causes have been linked mostly to changes in lifestyles.  

It is estimated that there are approximately 2.5 – 3 million prevalent cases of cancer in India at any given time. The good news is, there is a high probability of treating cancers if detected early—in Stage I or Stage II.

In the last decade, crowdfunding has become the no. 1 solution to raise an indefinite amount of money within a matter of weeks.
