About: Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) is a registered charitable non-governmental organisation (NGO) working towards the Total Management of Cancer as a disease, which includes: 

  • Spreading awareness on the dangers inherent in accepted social practices such as chewing of tobacco, early marriage, multiple pregnancies, etc, which are responsible for approximately 70% of cancers in India.
  • Initiating steps for the early detection of cancer since treatment at this stage leads to a cure in a majority of cases.
  • To provide complete assistance to cancer patients beyond that given by the medical profession, that is, taking a holistic approach, not attacking the malignancy in isolation.

Established in 1969, CPAA has a tradition of untiring service to needy cancer patients from all over India, and even neighbouring Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Pakistan. CPAA is an empathetic, reassuring, non-medical presence that has supported the treatment and overall needs of more than 40,000 cancer patients.

We believe that every cancer patient has a right to the full range of treatment, and our team of 60 employees and 60 doctors make sure that they get it. An extensive network of influential well-wishers supports our endeavours.

From a well-meaning group of individuals who had laudable intentions but could only afford the distribution of fruits and newspapers, to a multi-faceted organization helping patients cope with every aspect of cancer, CPAA has grown exponentially in scope, size and influence. We have a presence in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore and Pune. For more on our activities, click here.

Through the medium of the website, we are in touch with readers on five continents. We have extended material assistance to patients from Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

What Drives Us – What is it that inspires the people at CPAA? Here’s our Founder Chairman, Mr. Sapru, on the subject:

  • “Today’s management techniques focus on teaching people how to feign sentiment they don’t really feel. Genuine results can only come when the feeling originates in the heart. We are lucky that all our employees have this common characteristic. There is true sympathy for the people who come to us. Each one is willing to go out of their way to help.”
