 World No Tobacco Day: Donate Now

31st May is globally observed annually as the World No Tobacco Day and is the only global event established to call attention to tobacco use on public health and reduce individual tobacco-dependence. 

There is a strong social and cultural influence that entices young people into becoming smokers. Tobacco manufacturers make liberal use of lifestyle advertising, sports sponsorship and popular role models to convey the message that smoking is ‘cool’. In spite of the clear, unambiguous evidence accumulated on the damage that tobacco causes, a large proportion of policy makers are still unconvinced about the need to control tobacco advertising.

 Cancer ROSE DAY :  Donate Now

Rose Day

Rose Day, CPAA’s call to connect with cancer in a non-medical way was launched on September 22, 1994. A relief moment, CPAA opened cancer to mass compassion and goodwill. Seventeen years running, Rose Day has evolved…touched, moved, inspired Cancer Patients; if just for a while, lifted them out of an abyss to rekindle hope in their lives. It has also raised funds towards CPAA’s long-term goal of ‘Total Management of Cancer’.

The concept of Rose Day came from Joan Shenoy and her faith in the goodness and goodwill of the common man and the ability to draw them into a conversation about cancer in a non-intimidating way. Rose Day has emerged as that opportunity to channelize compassion into a sustainable campaign against cancer.” Nurtured and grown by CPAA's band of committed volunteers and workers, 22nd September is today observed as National Cancer Rose Day in India.

“The Rose, quintessential symbol of life & love and all things beautiful became a symbolic reminder…that life also has its thorns. So while a rose can’t cure, it helps you endure”, Joan Shenoy sums up contemplatively.

In essence Rose Day's objectives are:

  • To give Cancer patients a relief moment amidst their gruelling treatment regimen.
  • Get society to collectively focus on Cancer as a human condition.
  • Bring all the stakeholders into a meaningful interaction through the Rose Day initiative.
  • Find ways and means to bridge the gaps in treatment & care.
  • Raise Funds towards CPAA's Total Management programme.

Ghazal Khazana

Ghazal Khazana, a joint effort by Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) and Parents' Association Thalassemic Unit Trust, spear-headed by Mrs Rekha Sapru and Mr Pankaj Udhas respectively, is annually held in the month of July at the Oberoi Hotels & Resorts Mumbai. This annual event raises funds for Cancer and Thalassemic patients and children while providing a rare opportunity for Ghazal aficionados to experience the rich and vibrant performances of India's top performers. With what began in the year 2002 as a platform for Ghazal artists to come together to showcase their talent to a select audience that appreciated their music, Khazana has indeed come a long way. Over the years, many artists new and old have lent their support to this cause whilst giving us a glimpse of their poetic and musical prowess. CPAA and PATUT salute these truly gifted artists with their soulful melodies that make this event a true Treasure...a real Khazana !
