Cancer Research and Sarva Rakshana - The Cancer Prevention Project

The scientists, researchers and clinicians at Sri Shankara National Centre for Cancer Prevention and Research undertake massive projects that play a pivotal role in advancing oncology research and preventive oncology.

Sri Shankara National Centre for Cancer Prevention and Research has adopted two taluks - Chintamani and Gauribidanur in the Chikkabalapur District, Karnataka. Our Community Oncology team conducts free cancer awareness and screening camps for residents of both taluks.

Our custom-built mobile cancer unit enables on-spot primary screening. When confirmation of a cancer diagnosis is necessary, the satellite-enabled mobile cancer unit can also relay the diagnostics data for consultation to our oncology specialists at Shankara Cancer Hospitals, Bangalore. The patients who receive a diagnosis at these free screening camps receive free treatment at Shankara Cancer Hospitals, Bangalore.

The donation you provide will help us to lead this project and help us get one step closer to building a cancer-aware and cancer-free community. Your support will help us lead prevention projects in many more taluks and facilitate the advancement of cancer research.
