ABOUT LIVE LIFE LOVE LIFE

In 2013, when Praful Chandawarkar lost his beloved wife, Cheeru to cancer, he was heartbroken. Around the same time, his best friend, Suraj Repe too lost his dear wife Priya to this deadly disease. Their treatment was expensive, which got Praful and Suraj thinking, what about those who can’t afford the treatment of this deadly disease. Hence the inception of the Live Life Love Life Charity Foundation, a non for profit organisation that raises funds for cancer treatment of those who are financially disadvantaged. The charity also aims at spreading awareness about early detection of cancer through medical camps and aims to help patients in need of treatment by providing palliative care.

WHAT WE DO

Spread Awareness

Through prevention camps in urban and rural areas with primary focus on breast and cervical cancer.

Easy accessibility

To palliative cancer care and chemotherapy for the financially disadvantaged.

Mobile clinics

In rural and urban areas for early detection of cancer.

Support and care

Subsidised hospitalisation and surgeries -
Post operative care for those who cannot afford it.

Raise funds for Herceptin vaccine

Herceptin works by attaching itself to the HER2 receptors on the surface of breast cancer cells and blocking them from receiving growth signals. By blocking the signals, Herceptin can slow or stop the growth of the breast cancer, giving a normal and healthy lifestyle.
