Junagade Health Foundation

Charity begins at home 


We are the blessed,  special one in the society. There are many who need our help, not only  financial but also social, emotional and sometimes just a caring hand. In our  day to day life we do our own share of social work.


     After returning from  London in 2008, I have come across all types of patients, many have taught me  some hard facts of our life. Many patients, especially those in whom cancer was  diagnosed, have brought forth the “real” problems of our society we live in. There  are many things we take for granted.


     Many diseases I treat  are hereditary diseases. There is always a “blame game” in the family after I  discuss the diagnosis. Unfortunately the female member is at receiving end most  of the time, most often due to misconceptions, lack of knowledge and dearth of  education. Cancer is still a stigma in our society and I have seen many a times  treatment being denied to such patients due to social stigma and fear of the  people around. If the patient is a female, then many a times diagnosis and the  treatment is kept a secret so as to “protect” her and the ultimate fate of such  females, that is the institution of marriage. I have seen many young, female  cancer patients, who otherwise would have been cured (as in childhood blood  cancer) denied treatment due to the fear of society rather than the financial  implications alone. Many times patients are misguided by the unnecessary fear  of a seemingly simple treatment for a disease and then they suffer physically,  mentally and financially. This is due to past experiences of own self or near  and dear ones, who may have different disease or due to lack of medical  facilities at that time.


     Medical field is ever  changing and progressing. It is our duty to percolate this “new information” to  the people who matter and the society at large.


     We doctors do try and  inculcate knowledge, teach our patients and remove various misconceptions in  our daily practice. I thought that is not enough! We need to reach out to the  society and create a positive atmosphere regarding many hereditary diseases,  cancer and dietary practices we follow.


     Many of my elderly  patients with cancer cannot be cured completely. They need homely care in their  last days. In today’s world due to lack of time, financial constraints,  misconceptions about the cancer spread in family and lack of special centre’s  for terminally ill patients many such patients die a miserable death. We need  to educate the society about the true facts of cancer care and provide terminal  care centre and hospice to make the suffering less and maintain the dignity of  the patient till he breathes his last.

All these above  mentioned problems made us start “Junagade Health Foundation” as we always need  a platform to carry on social activities. Main objectives of our trust are:

  • Create awareness  about hereditary diseases like thalassaemia, sickle cell disease, hemophilia 
  • To offer  free treatment for thalassaemia and sickle cell disease patients.
  • To  eradicate thalassaemia and sickle cell disease by population screening  programmes.
  • To conduct  cancer awareness programmes and educate the society about cancer treatment.
  • To provide  monetary help to needy cancer patients.
  • To provide  24 hours helpline for cancer patients to address their physical and emotional  problems.
  • To provide  monetary help for needy patients who need stem cell therapy for various  haematological diseases.
  • To start  terminal cancer care centres.
  • To conduct  cancer detection camps in rural places.
  • To conduct  anaemia detection camp in rural places.
  • To promote  stem cell research for eradication of hereditary diseases.
  • To arrange  public lectures for education of cancer and other diseases.
  • To lobby  for government support and implement their various health programmes.

We are confident that  we will create a healthy atmosphere for all health related problems in our  society through our trust. We will of course need your guidance, support and  positive criticism to achieve our goal. Together we will succeed.
