ROKO CANCER MEANS STOP CANCER The trust was launched at London by Chawla Family in the memory of Mr. APS Chawlaís wife, who lost her life to breast cancer at a very early age. The core vision behind the trust is to bring awareness of breast cancer among women and to provide early detection, leading to treatment wherever possible. Mr. Chawla is working with Cherie Blair, Baroness Amos, Baroness Verma, Lord Karan Billimoria, Lord Dholokia, Keith Vaz, Geoff Hoon, Sandra Howard, Sarah Kennedy and many other prominent dignitaries in UK to highlight the disease among ethnic minorities. The Trust has launched Indiaís first fully equipped Mobile Breast Cancer Detection Unit for the women living in the semi urban and rural areas of India. The Trust provides free mammography and ultrasound to the women in the detection camps with the results on the spot. The Trust has the medical support of leading hospitals in India. An effort that voiced its appeal loud and clear ďRoko CancerĒ - It could happen to you. The movement gained momentum soon and as volunteers and cause driven partners joined hands globally, Roko Cancerís clarion call started reaching out its buzzword of ďawarenessĒ to the farflung rural and semi urban areas of India, at a fast and furious pace. A first ever Mobile Cancer Detection bus that takes a journey for a cause through the tough terrains of Punjab, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and soon M.P and Maharashtra, has in a short span touched a figures that is nothing less than remarkable. It inspires an undying spirit of waging a war against ignorance towards Breast Cancer Globally. The mission of the trust is to launch a number of detection units in every state of India. The Trust has also initiated campaign in Pakistan whereby the Mobile breast cancer detection unit will travel to Pakistan for three months in association with a Breast Cancer Charity in Pakistan to do free awareness and detection camps for the women. The unit will also travel to other South Asian countries in the near future.
