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.
SUPPORTED 40 + HOSPITALS, ACROSS 24 CITIES IN 17 STATES IN INDIA.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PEDIATRIC CANCER
Poor families affected the most: As most of the Government/ Trust hospitals are now converted to COVID centers, non-COVID poor patients are facing difficulties in finding suitable alternatives.
MANDATORY COVID TESTS: Families are struggling to pay for COVID tests every time a child has to get admitted for chemotherapy
LACK OF GOVERNMENT FUNDS: There is delay in receiving all Govt funds(PM/CM/ other) Govt. funds acts as one of the main source of funds but now families are looking up to NGO’s like us for the funds
BREAK IN THE TREATMENT: Many parents have lost their jobs and are struggling to arrange funds for the treatment of their child.
In our journey to provide optimum care to our children with leukemia, we are enormously fortunate to have Leukemia Crusaders as our partners. Over many years, including during the Covid-19 pandemic, they have consistently and promptly helped us with funds for these patients and help them complete their treatment without interruption thus ensuring a better outcome.

Divyanshi is not alone, Leukemia Crusaders has helped many so far who are getting treated for blood cancer in our institute.
Funding from Leukemia Crusaders has been a big boon for patients from the poor socio-economic strata of society, as now they do not abandon treatment due to lack of funds. The lives of many children have been saved due to the help extended by Leukemia Crusaders.
They help needy patients in the shortest time. Because of them, I can see a future with 0% abandonment.
