The YouWeCan Cancer Treatment Fund for Paediatric Patients provides financial assistance for the treatment of eligible cancer patients, to a maximum limit of Rs. 3,00,000.00 (rupees three lakhs) per patient. Only patients belonging to underprivileged backgrounds, who are below 16 years of age, are eligible to receive support under the fund.
The entire cost of treatment of shortlisted patients is supported, as per the treatment plan of the hospital, including (but not limited to) diagnostic tests, investigations, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery and cost of medication. All medical services related to the treatment are provided directly by the partner hospital. YouWeCan Foundation’s role is limited to providing financial aid to support the cost of treatment.
Strict processes are in place for due diligence and screening of cases. To ensure transparency and to maintain strong financial control, funds are disbursed directly to hospitals and not to beneficiaries or their caregivers/ family.
