Maanavseva

“Maanavseva" (Service to Humans) is a Registered Non-Profit with a mission to fight malignancies including breast cancer among rural women in Indian villages. The mission is achieved through activities such as educating, creating awareness, conducting preventive examinations and mammogram screenings and facilitating the hand-holding of rural women with necessary follow-up and treatment.Maanavseva intends to implement this mission by adopting one village at a time and conducting 100% screening of all village women as per the health guidelines and implement follow-up on a sustained basis. The short term focus is to create a successful process for a cluster of villages that is replicable and sustainable. Maanavseva will achieve this goal through conducting pilot studies in villages, identify, resolve and document the challenges involved and arrive at a workable and sustainable model. The long term focus is to expand the model to several clusters of villages through sponsorship of corporations, local bodies and other Governmental Schemes. Most prevalent cancers for rural women can be cured by early detection and appropriate treatment. If these cancers are detected early, the cost is less, treatment is less invasive, survival rates are higher and the quality of life is better. Therefore we believe that by creating awareness about these cancers and early detection through mammogram and other screenings is extremely important and is the only way to win the war on breast cancer.

CurePSP

Prime of life neurodegeneration is a spectrum of relatively rare diseases that often afflict people during productive, active years and lead to debilitating symptoms and early death. They are generally categorized as frontotemporal disorders and are characterized by progressive personality, behavior, language and motor decline. These diseases create a level of functional impairment that significantly compromises the ability to carry out activities of daily living. There is currently no treatment and no cure, but there is hope. Research into these diseases may be a gateway to understanding and ultimately preventing, treating and curing more common neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. CurePSP is the leading organization within this disease spectrum, providing support for patients, families and caregivers; awareness and education to healthcare professionals; and global research funding. Current research into prime of life diseases, especially progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), is showing great promise for unlocking the secrets of neurodegeneration.
