Encouraged by the public appreciation of the Inlaks and budhrani general hospital and to widen the scope of service to suffering humanity, sadhu vaswani mission thought of adding a cancer institute with state of the art cancer diagnostic and treatment equipments and other modern facilities both for outdoor and indoor patients. The urgency for such a cancer institute became all the more pressing since patients from Pune and far–flung areas had no other option but to go to Tata Memorial hospital, bombay incurring very high expenses for treatment, transport and accommodation. Accordingly the project of a well planned 150 be cancer institute with a basement and five upper stories having an area of about 60.000sq. ft. was taken up. The foundation stone of the building was laid by revered Dada J. P. Vaswani on the 10th of March, 1994. The building was completed, equipped and provided with all the required medical specialists/technicians within 17 months. The Institute was consecrated and commissioned on the 24the Nov., 1995 by Dada J. P. Vaswani.
Donors and Finances
Several benevolent donors, particularly M/s Chandru and Dasi Budhrani and their families offered to contribute about INR 9 crores towards the construction of the building and providing it with substantial number of imported equipments. Other donors who contributed generously towards the procurement of imported equipment include Dada Daulatram of curacao, Mr. Hiro Makhijani of Lagos, Shri. Ashok Gurnani of USA, M/sDon, Kishoo, Chandru, Vashi Sakhrani Brothers of Hong Kong/St. Martin, Mr. Kishu Gagumal of Manila, Mr. Dharmu Chandiramani and Mr. Hiro Moorjani of Hongkong and devotees from Miami and several other cities in USA. The total cost of the first phase of the project is expected to be INR 20 Crores. The cancer institute has been named as M. N. Budhrani cancer institute after the parents of the main donors. The cancer institute has already started attracting a sizeable number of patients. Sadhu Vaswani Mission hopes that the M. N. Budhrani Cancer Institute will shortly become a great diagnostic and healing center for cancer patients for its unmatched facilities and affordable costs.
