Palliative Care Treatment is a developing area of healthcare that focuses on relieving the suffering of terminally ill patients. In 2005, ASHIC, Foundation Serving Childhood Cancer, was the only parent-run organizationout of 14 global projects to receive a grant ..
ASHIC started the Support-a-Life program in 2004 to help the needy patients financially for the treatment cost,to support them to continue to complete their maintenance course of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
Very recently we have introduced the treatment support of few Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) patients. We have seen the trend of the ALL patients becoming survivorsif they can complete their treatment and maintenance course. Since mid 2016we have started to provide financial support after receiving donation for treatment of this type of patients.The treatment protocol is costlyand it is not possible for the foundation to support these type of patientsalone without donor’s contribution. We are now supporting limited number of patients due to fund shortages.
