In the journey of Cancer Research Project it was felt that there is a need of common platform where the worldwide experts working in the field of Cancer should come together and share there valuable views on this crucial issue, where the experience, knowledge, opinions will be discussed with a common interest i.e. improving quality of life and life span of Cancer patients. To fulfill this need Dr. S. P. Sardeshmukh organised International Conferences on ‘Ayurved for Cancer’ which are held regularly every 5 years from December 1997.
Third International Conference on “Ayurved for Cancer”
23rd February to 25th February 2007
Venue : Brightland Village
About Cancer Research Project
The word ‘Cancer’ itself creates fear and anxiety in the mind of a person. One of the reasons being that, inspite of the conventional treatments available the mortality rate still remains high. Cancer Research Project was started in 1994 under the guidance of Param Poojya Shri Prabhakar Keshav Sardeshmukh Maharaj and inspiration of Late Shri. Balasaheb Bharade and Mrs. Indumati Bharade. This project is conducted at Pune, Mumbai and Solapur. Until now more than 3000 patients have been registered in the project. Ayurvedic treatment is given with the consultation of Dr. S. P. Sardeshmukh. Dr. Arvind Kulkarni (Ex – HOD, Radiation Oncology, Director, Radiation Oncology Department, Lady Ratan Tata Hospital, Mumbai) and Dr. Shirish Kumthekar (well known onco surgeon from Solapur) act as co-ordinators in this project.
