‘Pratyasha‘ (a Malayalam word, which means ‘Hope’) is a support group for children with cancer — a helping hand for families of children and young people with cancer.
Under the aegis of Paediatric Oncology Division of the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC), Trivandrum, Kerala, a support group – ‘Pratyasha’ was formed in April 2003 to support the affected families during illness and its treatment regime and also afterwards. ‘Pratyasha’ is a non-profit voluntary organisation registered (Reg no: T.829/2003) under the 1955 Tranvancore-Kochi Literary Scientific and Charitable Societies Act governed by an eleven-member Executive Committee.
Though the area of activity is the entire Kerala state, the beneficiaries will be selected mainly from those who seek medical care from the Regional Cancer Centre. The aim of the society is to extend a helping hand to paediatric cancer patients by identifying the needy and providing them with medicines, emotional support and helping in the rehabilitation of the cured. The organisation believes that it can bring a smile on the children’s face with the hope of relieving some of the stress from the parents, may be for just a short period, or for lasting memories.
