The goal of 1SmallStepforCancer.com is to raise Rs. 1Cr and help 1,000 children complete their cancer treatment.
Talking about being associated with the initiative, Varun Dhawan said, “I have personally spent some time with children suffering from cancer and it's amazing to see how bravely they fight this disease. It always inspires and humbles me and I am glad to be part of this much needed initiative #1SmallStepForCancer. It's very sad to know in our country 4 out of 10 children are forced to abandon their treatment midway. This Emergency Fund that we are building will help up to 1,000 such children survive cancer."
