About Ogaan Cancer Foundation and ELLE Breast Cancer Campaign
The ELLE Breast Cancer Campaign was launched in 2003 with a mission to raise awareness for the cause of Breast Cancer. It is one of the leading voices in the sector today.
Through innovative annual events, the ELLE Breast Cancer Campaign ties up with leading designers, retail and hospitality brands and corporate offices to increase awareness about Breast Cancer and raise funds to help underprivileged women who are cancer victims.
All funds raised through the ELLE Breast Cancer Campaign go to the Ogaan Cancer Foundation. The Ogaan Cancer Foundation is a company limited by share capital not for profit under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956. The Foundation then channels the funds raised to well established non profits working in the sector such as the Women’s Cancer Initiative (WCI) at the Tata Memorial Hospital. With these funds, WCI has helped hundreds of poor women access treatments and post treatment care. The Ogaan Cancer Foundation also ties up with other non-profits for organising detection camps for underprivileged women.
About Women’s Cancer Initiative – Tata Memorial Hospital (WCI-TMH)
WCI-TMH was founded by MrsDeviekaBhojwani in partnership with the Tata Memorial Hospital in 2003. It has been designed to take care of various issues related to cancers in women such as breast, cervical and ovarian cancers. The foundation is based at Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai, one of the leading hospitals in the country, working on treatment, education and research in the field of cancer. The foundation has undertaken numerous initiatives to create awareness and emphasise the importance of early detection. It aids R&D on the causes and cures of the disease, facilitates interaction between professionals through annual breast cancer conferences. WCI-TMH also organises an ‘Open Forum’ for members of the general public to interact with experts in the field of cancer. However its core activity is financially supporting over 500 women annually who are unable to afford their treatment but have over an 80 per cent chance of recovery.
Thus, ELLE Carnival for a Cause is a unique way to raise funds, since the designer-wear is affordably priced under Rs.10,000, enabling a wider audience to contribute and be a part of the initiative. Along, with great discounts are available on high street fashion brands, beauty products and super stylish accessories.
