Way back in 2004 on August 31. 2004, this trust, by name, Himadri Memorial Cancer Welfare Trust was formed under the settler ship of Dr. Mukhopadhyay for ushering in various welfare programs for the victims and their families concerning the dreadful cancer diseases as well as to undertake constant research and development processes for taming the life-threatening cancer disease. It is to mention here that the brain behind this formation of cancer welfare trust is a well-known Oncologist Late Dr. Ashis Mukhpadhyay. Being a noted Oncologist his dream was to establish a modern and comprehensive cancer hospital in Kolkata.
Be it mentionable that Dr. Mukhopadhyay during his professional practice at Mumbai-TATA Memorial Cancer Hospital thought of returning to his home town West Bengal. After returning he initiated a cancer research institute at 14 A, Park Lane in Kolkata after the name of our unforgettable freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. The primary aim of establishing the said institute was to provide quality cancer care treatment at an affordable cost to scores of marginalized populations being battled by cancer disease. Dr. Mukhopadhyay’s constant efforts and planning of arresting the ever-increasing section of the populace with a focus on marginalized patients finally took shape in a broader spectrum, when under this his stewardship, accompanied by a team dedicated to cancer research and trends of cancer affliction amongst a large development being headed by Dr. Soma Mukhopadhyay, noted molecular biologist and better half of Dr. Ashis Mukhopadhyay, formed in 2018, a 150 bedded super specialty state of the art cancer hospital, by name, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Cancer Hospital at a sprawling campus in Nayabad, New Garia, Kolkata.
