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.

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

COVID-19
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
