Ø  Ruby Ahluwalia, a serving senior bureaucrat, was diagnosed with Triple Negative (Stage 3) Breast Cancer in 2009.


Ø  The emotional and physical pain, as well as the financial stress of battling cancer, prompted Ruby to begin a new chapter in her own Life - Beyond Cancer.


Ø  She set up Sanjeevani… Life Beyond Cancer, 2012, with the aim to make journey of cancer for underprivileged patients and their families less strenuous, thus enabling them to complete their treatment and live as productive members of the society thereafter.


Sanjeevani works predominantly with underprivileged patients and the programs offered by them are free of cost to patients. Sanjeevani started with just one Caregiver, helping patients at Tata Memorial Hospital, in 2012, and was able to handhold over 500 patients that year. As Ruby says, “We navigate patients for the full spectrum from despair to rehabilitation and thus I think of Sanjeevani as a nation builder and not just an NGO.”
