Cancer instills fear, yet it is a modern-day reality. It comes unannounced and anybody can fall prey to it.The fight against this dreaded disease is tough and only the sufferers and their carers can tell how cancer breaks them not just physically but mentally and financially as well. Depending on the form of cancer, its stage and treatment options, one has to shell out anywhere between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 50 lakh for treatment and care.
