About Us

    The Indian Cancer Society was founded in Mumbai in 1951 by the renowned oncologist Dr. DJ Jussawala, with the stated objective of providing cancer awareness and education, as well as offering high quality-low cost cancer screening facilities.   Dr. Jussawala saw even in those early years that prevention through awareness and understanding was the only way to fight the scourge of cancer, giving Patients & Medical practitioners the best chance of a cure.

    The Delhi Branch was set up in 1983 by a group of enlightened citizens, led by Mr. KK Mehta, who continued to guide the activities of ICS Delhi until 2011. Our Statement of Intent has remained The Conquest of Cancer by Choice; not Chance over the years. Volunteers are the driving force of ICS Delhi, undertaking the many activities that are our Charter. Dedicated Staff provide the required spine.
