We are delighted to share that St Judes has completed the set-up of our 42nd Centre – at Mira Road, Mumbai. The new centre will provide free-of-cost holistic care and accommodation to eight children and their families, undergoing Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) procedures at the BMC’s CTC, PHO & BMT Center, Borivali.
“Bone marrow transplant (BMT) is a special therapy for patients with certain cancers. It tries to transfuse healthy bone marrow cells into a person after his or her own unhealthy bone marrow has been treated to kill the abnormal cells. The patient requires a lot of care and support before, during and after BMT procedure. Keeping that in mind, the new centre exclusively supports children undergoing BMT in Mumbai. The holistic support offered at the centres tries to close the gap between what the hospital provides and what the children need to beat cancer." said Anil Nair, CEO, St. Judes India, about the launch of their latest centre.
With the opening of this facility, St. Judes has expanded its presence to 11 Indian cities: Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Chennai, Vellore, Guwahati, Delhi, Varanasi, Muzaffarpur, and Vishakhapatnam. We now have 42 Centres that look after 524 families every day.
