About Us

To us, at the Sri Lanka Cancer Society a cancer patient is a human being deserving of great care, protection and a better quality of life. Our mission therefore has a singular focus, to provide the best care for cancer patients, irrespective of their cultural, social, ethnic or religious backgrounds.

Our hope is to see a world free of cancer but until then, we strive to provide solace and care to needy  cancer patients primarily through our two facilities. The first is ‘Shantha Sevena’ a hospice for the  care of terminally ill Cancer patients. The second is the ‘Bandaranaike Memorial Cancer Homes” a transit home & care facility for Cancer patients receiving treatment at the Maharagama Cancer Institute.
