Where can we get financial aid for cancer?
Q: One of my close relatives is seriously affected by cancer. He has cancer right below the root of his tongue. He has a severe swelling around the right side of his neck and below the chin. Doctors at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute have said that he is in the advance stage and the only possible treatment is chemotherapy and the cancer is inoperable. My relative is financially very poor, he is a farmer and the treatment for this disease is very expensive. Can you please help us by telling any place where we can get financial aid for this treatment?
A:The following options exist: 1. Go to AIIMS - rotary cancer hospital, they adopt patients. 2. Approach Cancer Patient Aid Association. 3. There are very cheap drugs like methotrexate, which can be used.
