Leukemia Crusaders
From the Chairman's Desk
Leukemia Crusaders is an Initiative of BansiVidya Memorial Trust. The Trust was formed in 2012 to work and contribute towards the noble cause of supporting Leukemia (Blood Cancer) affected children.
We believe that children are the future of India and there should be no reason why they should lose their future due to lack of funds. Every child has a right to live and Leukemia Crusaders is our vehicle to achieve this belief. From the first girl child in November 2013, we have till date supported more than 1500 children in 40 hospitals across the country.
It is our dream to bring about a significant change and progress in the treatment and recovery of Leukemia affected children in India

Our Story
“It’s not just a story of winning, it’s a story of not giving up. When people decide not to give up, something wonderful happens. They live. They live a better life.”

Monica Vohra (Managing Trustee)

FROM PARENTS TO CRUSADERS

It was in July 2011 that Aaryan, son of Monica & Arvind Vohra was diagnosed with Leukemia. Like all parents they were in a state of shock and the name itself spelled uncertainty and fear. Only after visiting a couple of doctors they realised that this illness was curable and it was a winning battle.
The trauma and tribulations the family experienced while fighting childhood cancer, made them pledge to extend support to the needy and underprivileged parents of Leukemia affected children and founded Leukemia Crusaders.
About LEUKEMIA
WHAT IS LEUKEMIA?
The word Leukemia literally means white-blood, just like the disease, where abnormal white blood cells are produced causing a wide range of problems, while compromising on the overall health. Leukemia, also known as blood cancer, is the most common type of cancer amongst children. Almost 50% of the children diagnosed with cancer every year in India are those affected by leukemia. The Tragedy Children in India are losing the battle against leukemia due to three main reasons:Lack of awareness, Lack of funds and Late detection In India, standard survival rate for children is as low as 33%, Every year 70000-80000 new cases of childhood cancer are detected. A Cause worth Fighting For
  • Leukemia is curable if detected early
  • Current standard survival rate in the developed world is as high as 80-90%
Imagine, the number of children that can be saved with little awareness!
