About Us

In 2011, Sri Shankara Cancer Foundation, USA was registered as a non-profit organization exempt from Federal income tax under the section 501(c)(3) of Internal revenue code. SSCF-USA hopes to be at the crossroad of endeavors in combating cancer by identifying challenges in providing effective cancer treatment, conceiving and implementing initiatives such as fund raising events and community activities that promote cancer awareness and educating people about cancers and its implication to the society. Overall through our combined undertakings, we strive to help all patients but specifically the underprivileged in their fight against cancer.

Apart from providing funds for chemotherapy, surgery or palliative care, the funds collected through various SSCF-USA initiatives will be used to augment the relentless work and innovations by the medical community by supporting initiatives that aid cancer research and promote cancer awareness.

Consequently Sri Shankara Cancer Hospital and Research Centre was designed to have nearly 300 beds with state-of-the-art facilities built in a compassionate environment.
