National Cancer Rose Day 2006

In 1994, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first attempt at cancer patient support made by, we decided to reach out with a meaningful gesture to each and every cancer patient. We also wanted to use the occasion to motivate participation on a large scale and involve the general public in our cause of raising cancer awareness. This gesture took the form of a greeting to all patients in every hospital, clinic, hospice and treatment centre with a rose to convey a message of love and empathy. The idea caught on, and Rose Day became an annual event. Today the entire country  joins in enthusiastically in the exercise to distribute this floral tribute. Rose coupons are sold at various outlets and the response is always overwhelming. From cine celebrities to mill workers to school students, people from all walks of life visit patients in 33 hospitals, distributing gifts & roses.
This year Rose Day was launch amidst much fan fanfare at Taj Lands End, Mumbai by the honorable Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare , Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss and Dr. S. J. Habeyab, the World Health Organisation Representative to India by presenting roses & gifts to cancer affected children.
