The Cankids Pediatric Palliative Care Day Care & Transition Home

I have known Poonam for a few years (www.cankidsindia.org) and watched in bewildered awe as her organisation has gone from strength to strength and now has a national presence. An important part of her efforts has been to establish a Day Care & Transition Home in Delhi. This dream is finally achieved today and the Home, which is located in proximity to AIIMS and Safdarjung Hospitals, has been opened today. I have been there last year when it was being developed and the ambition of the project as well as the attention to detail is incredible. I wish Poonam and her organisation many more such successes.


  1. Dedication at its best.
    We have named our trust as " Curable cancer in kids " to convey a message that some cancers are curable , but this also means others are not, I was at Kidwai institute of oncology , Bangalore, at the OPD today and saw a family who were told "no further cure is possible", felt the need of such center, here and everywhere a family may be told this. Congratulation and all the best to Cankids.. Kidscan..

  2. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
