Pure Lotus Cancer Foundation reaches out to cancer patients.
Cancer is a dreaded disease. When the doctor first pronounced that “you have cancer “ it is like the floor beneath you has opened up.
Cancer brings fear of death, fear of pain, fear of suffering, and fear of fear itself. In the midst of these confusing emotions, you go through the gamut of tests and their confusing results. On top of it all, you are advised treatment which is a financial burden on an already depressed and stressed mind.
Pure Lotus Cancer Foundation hopes to be the light to those in the dark night. We help them financially by paying for their treatment.
