Announcing the launch of the platform, Prashant Tandon, Co-Founder and CEO, Tata 1mg, said, “Cancer as a condition is significantly difficult not only for the patient, but also for the entire ecosystem around them. In every case, we find that there is too much chaos and uncertainty. I am very happy to announce the launch of our Cancer Care Platform with a single objective: Making cancer care as seamless and as efficient as it can be. I hope that through this platform, we can enable an easier and much more humane experience for patients and caregivers, and bring transparency, quality and trust to the delivery of cancer care.” Tandon added, “We look forward to further enhancing the platform in the near future.

The mission is to support and empower people and families affected by cancer and bridge the gap between cancer and care.” “One of the biggest myths about cancer is that it is the end of everything”, said Dr Ayush Makkar, practicing surgical oncologist, Punjab Cancer Care & Multispeciality Hospital.
