CPAA fights cancer with roses !

An ultimate symbol of the beauty of life, Rose Day presents you with a bouquet of opportunities to join CPAA’s campaign to bring comfort and hope to the poor cancer patient.

Rose Day is the bridge from hapless to hopeful...

22nd September is a day conceived and ear-marked by Cancer Patients Aid Association since the past 14 years to bring cheer, happiness and smiles to cancer patients all over the country. This annual event is a gesture from the association to show its support and care to thousands of cancer patients and their families. It's CPAA's way of making a difference in the fight against cancer. At the most basic level, it is a human expression to say that we care. About its inception >>

Looking deeper however, it's what gives CPAA the dynamism and scope to engage itself in the very real issues of cancer - Treatment; the prohibitive costs of cancer drugs; the lack of awareness; the endemic proportions of Head & Neck cancers. Rose Day in that sense is the bridge from hapless to hopeful...
