Cancer Hospital and Research institute, Gwalior has a tragic back ground in its foundation. In March 1971, Shri & Smt. Shitla Sahai had lost their only son Rajiv, who was suffering from osteosarcoma sarcoma. Hardly any facilities were available then in Gwalior for the treatment of cancer. Undaunted by the grief, this family vowed to start a Cancer Hospital to provide benefit to cancer patients in Gwalior. With this aim in view, a charitable trust “Jan Vikas Nyas” was founded in May 1971. Surmounting difficulties and with untiring efforts of the bereaved family, Cancer Hospital was Started in 1977, which has gradually developed to a modern Cancer Hospital with facilities for comprehensive management of cancer.
