September 22 : Rose Day in India
Rose Day, CPAA’s call to connect with cancer in a non-medical way was launched on September 22, 1994. A relief moment, CPAA opened cancer to mass compassion and goodwill. Seventeen years running, Rose Day has evolved…touched, moved, inspired Cancer Patients; if just for a while, lifted them out of an abyss to rekindle hope in their lives. It has also raised funds towards CPAA’s long-term goal of ‘Total Management of Cancer’.

The concept of Rose Day came from Joan Shenoy and her faith in the goodness and goodwill of the common man and the ability to draw them into a conversation about cancer in a non-intimidating way. Rose Day has emerged as that opportunity to channelize compassion into a sustainable campaign against cancer.” Nurtured and grown by CPAA's band of committed volunteers and workers, 22nd September is today observed as National Cancer Rose Day in India.

“The Rose, quintessential symbol of life & love and all things beautiful became a symbolic reminder…that life also has its thorns. So while a rose can’t cure, it helps you endure”, Joan Shenoy sums up contemplatively.

In essence Rose Day's objectives are:
To give Cancer patients a relief moment amidst their gruelling treatment regimen.
Get society to collectively focus on Cancer as a human condition.
Bring all the stakeholders into a meaningful interaction through the Rose Day initiative.
Find ways and means to bridge the gaps in treatment & care.
Raise Funds towards CPAA's Total Management programme.
