I thrived after my problems and today my child is a winner, celebrating life. Awareness is the key, if more parents are aware and speak about the disease, thousands would be motivated that there is a life after Cancer and their kids can lead a normal life.”
Deepak Wadhwani – Vice President said, “ The foundation was born out of the first-hand experience of witnessing my young brother Chirag go down fighting like a warrior. When we lost Chirag, we felt helpless, sad, angry and very alone in our loss. We needed someone or something that would heal our wounds, help us remember Chirag fondly and convert our loss into something positive and meaningful and we feel absolutely blessed… by supporting each brave kid”
