Short Story About Rajkot Cancer Society

Founded on Vijayadashami in 1969, the sapling of Rajkot Cancer Society took root through the collaborative efforts of dedicated medical professionals, elite social workers, and generous donors. Over the years, this seedling has grown into a robust Comprehensive Cancer Center, addressing the needs of cancer patients in Saurashtra and Kutch. The transformative journey from a diagnostic center to a fully-fledged cancer facility has been witnessed by visionaries such as founder Chairman Shri Pranlalbhai Joshi, Dr. Pravinbhai Doshi, Dr. Trilokbhai Shah, Dr. Amulakh Silhar, Shri Umakant Pandit, Shri Kishore P. Ghiya, Dr. R. L. Shah, Shri Shivlalbhai Worah, and Smt. Hiraben K. Sheth.

These pioneers envisioned a healthcare landscape where middle and lower-income cancer patients could access quality treatment at reasonable costs. Their clear vision and commitment led to the establishment of a Cancer Hospital with the mission to provide affordable and subsidized treatment to those in need. Through the collaborative efforts of the founders, donors, and medical professionals, the society continues to uphold its mission of serving the community and providing hope to those affected by cancer.
