About Us: Dream Foundation is a Registered
Public Charitable Trust established in 1986. Health and
education are our core objectives. We have been working
in the field of cancer since 1995, to help cancer patients
undergoing treatment at the major oncology centers in India.
Our Prime objective is to empower people to cope with the
trauma of cancer and to ease their burden by providing financial
aid for medical treatment, counseling, rehabilitation support
during cancer treatment, education of cancer survivor children
and empowerment of women and their families.
Information about cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment,
guidance, and counseling to cope with cancer.
Scholarships to children of cancer affected families. Non-formal
Services: Dream Foundation launched
the Non-Formal Learning Program (NFLP) to supplement and
enrich a child's education outside the formal school environment.
Our focus is not only on what is taught but how it is taught.
A cherished aim of Dream Foundation is to assist economically
weak cancer affected families to educate their children,
thereby giving them opportunities for a better future. Our
educational services are two-fold
Dream Foundation Scholars are themselves recovered cancer
patients or belong to cancer affected families. Before awarding
the scholarship, we determine whether or not the family
is in genuine financial need. Aid is disbursed to the scholars
in installment, throughout the academic year. Every Dream
Foundation scholar is motivated to study through periodic
interventions - counseling, incentive for good performance
and group activities such as workshops.
Cancer is a life-threatening disease. In India, mortality
rates are high. Diagnosis and treatment are often expensive
and protracted. A cancer-affected family also has many non-medical
needs. Overcoming ignorance, dealing with fear, uncertainty
and social stigma are highly stressful. In addition to aid
for medical treatment, timely guidance and continued support
are essential to help them cope.
Dream Foundation seeks to
assist these families through a broad-based support system.
Guidance, emotional support and counseling.
Aid for medical treatment and rehabilitation.
Empowerment of cancer affected women.

Counseling at Dream Foundation Cancer Care Centre:
Our counselors are both professionals and non professionals
who have confidence in their own identity and do not apologise
or try to abscure it. They represent achievement and hard
earned wisdom about dealing with cancer afflicted patient
from 2 years to 60 years of age.
As with the army, which in centuries of dealing with human
beings has learned without any psychological insight or
sophistication, a great deal about the pragmatic management
of their strength and weaknesses, so our volunteers called
on to help cancer patients in distress have acquired, without
any deep psychological awareness, estimable stores of practical
ways of helping people get through difficult period of lives.
Our counselor always focus on the current conscious life
situation of the individual patient seeking help. They try
to strengthen the healthy defenses, and psychological resources,
of the cancer patient who come to their help.
They assist the patient on the conscious level, try to seal
the conflict in their mind and coupled with misunderstanding,
are often an enormous and successful source of support for
These basic motions are the cornerstones of successful counseling
by our dedicated team.
Understanding is at the heart of all good counseling, which
helps the bewildered people see their dilemma in better
Counseling at Dream Foundation is not restricted to the
patient alone but it reaches out to their loved ones who
are equally in distress. This helps creating a positive
environment in the whole family.
Our counselors convey very strongly that the cancer patients
are not alone in facing their lives dilemma and that Dream
Foundation is an extension of their immediate family.
