Butterfly Cancer Care focuses on a one-to-one relationship with parents and patients to address the cancer challenge. Any individual or community worker who comes across an issue can be recommended to the Butterfly Team. In another mode, the treating doctor or a doctor who knows the patient can also be the primary recruiter. With the Doctor’s recommendation, the patient or the family may submit an application in a prescribed format, to request support from BCCF based on need and eligibility.
In 2018, BCCF established Butterfly Children’s Free Clinics in Kerala, partnering with locally serving doctors. The goal is to provide early diagnosis for children so that parents can bring them in for a consultation without worrying about the cost. Butterfly offers free consultations and sponsors diagnosis charges for kids who may have any symptoms that could indicate cancer. This way, parents can get the peace of mind they need and children can get the treatment they need as soon as possible.
