The Tata Memorial Centre constitutes the national comprehensive cancer center for the prevention, treatment and research on Cancer and is comparable to any similar center in the world.Rotary Club of Mumbai Mahim has been associated with Tata Hospital for last 4-5 years.
This year the under CSR activity, RCMM team along with ThyssenKrupp provided funds for 48 sets of Catheters (9 consumables used in operation). This donation would help reduce the cost on the consumables that the poor have to spend and help the needy people for their treatment.
The project involved the provision of specialized equipment for the treatment of Retinoblastoma   (cancer of the retina) which affects children till the age of 15. Out 5000 cases in the world almost 1500 cases are from India. The aim is to restore sight, if not save the eye, if not save the life. Enucleation (removal of the eye ball) is not so easily accepted socially in India). RCMM’s efforts have given sight to many children as the success rate is more than 70%.
The first dedicated pediatric cancer unit was started in Tata Memorial Hospital in 1985. Tata Memorial hospital is the first center in the country providing Pediatric Oncology Disease management Group (DMG). Till now they have treated 58 patients – 72 eyes – 178 sessions. They started with 3-4 patents and now are able to attend to around 2-3 patients each week. The patients are referred from all over India and neighboring countries like Afghanistan.
With the latest advancements in Imaging and catheter technology, a targeted treatment can be given to the eye-ball helping save the eye and also the spread and impact on the kid’s life.
