Our Story

Our Story

Karo was founded in 2014 in memory of Karan Malhotra. Karan was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, an agressive form of bone and soft tissue cancer. While he was undergoing treatment, Karan became particularly sensitised to the realities of this disease and the mental and physical trauma that comes with it. He wondered how patients from less fortunate backgrounds churned out the many resources required for such treatments. His own journey forged in him a desire to provide quality and holistic healthcare to the less fortunate, especially children, teenagers and young adults.

Since its establishment, KARO has supported 2900 patients, and counting. We are now associated with over 90 hospitals in India and have grown to become an assured source of funding and support for young patients of cancer.
