NGO Profile :
CanSupport was established by a cancer survivor to provide free support to cancer patients of all ages and at all stages of their cancer journey. Their palliative care experts ensure that patients remain pain free and enjoy a good quality of life. Parents and families have access to a helpline, supportive medication and equipment, information on mobilizing financial aid, day-care and counselling services.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Home Care Field Services: Teams of doctors, nurses and counsellors trained in palliative care make weekly visits to homes of patients too sick to travel. They provide free high quality medical care, as well as psychosocial and spiritual support. By the end of March 2017, 28 teams functioning out of 14 Field Centres were providing concurrent care to 2,054 patients. Their teams served a total of 3,600+ patients and families with 36,554 home visits. The Community Networking Officers reach out to underserved areas, slums and villages by raising awareness of cancer through health camps.  
  • Outpatient Clinics: These free clinics, established in 2013, provide essential supportive care and ensure better outcomes for patients who are mobile. Patients are helped to respond to side effects as soon as they occur, and those who visit (FY18: 11,677) are more likely to complete their treatment, and avoid unnecessary hospitalization.
  • Training, Education and Research: Training and education form an integral part of CanSupport’s commitment to help set up palliative care services countrywide. They organize in-house trainings for their team, invite guest speakers to build on their competencies, and organize workshops in palliative care.
  • Telephone Helpline: It provides information and emotional support to callers, provides coordination with care/service providers for cancer-related needs. This is a confidential service and manned by trained counsellors, providing support to around 530 callers per month.
  • Day Care: The Day Care program for adults and children with cancer, operational since 2002, is run by 55 trained volunteers. These volunteers organize a host of creative and therapeutic activities designed to alleviate stress and bring hope and laughter back into the lives of patients and their shattered families.
