India Post, Apollo Cancer Centres join hands to launch ‘Stamp Out Childhood Cancer’ campaign 

To release 60,000 commemorative stamps

Apollo Cancer Centres is collaborating with India Post to launch a commemorative stamp under the campaign ‘Stamp Out Childhood Cancer.’ This innovative effort aims to go beyond merely creating awareness, by bringing people together to join hands in fighting against childhood cancer and carrying a profound message of hope, strength, and unity.


The highlight of the event was the presence of a paediatric cancer survivor, whose courage and determination have been an inspiration to many. During the launch, 60,000 stamps were released, commemorating this significant collaboration between Apollo Cancer Centres and India Post.

Dr Amita Mahajan, Senior Consultant, Paediatric Oncology and Hematology, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital in New Delhi, expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative, saying, “Being dedicated to the well-being of children, we recognise the immense significance of early detection in the fight against childhood cancer. This stamp symbolises not only hope but also the critical need for awareness and support. Every day, we witness the incredible resilience and bravery of young cancer warriors and their families. This initiative, ‘Stamp Out Childhood Cancer,’ carries with it a message of solidarity that extends far beyond the postage stamp. It represents our commitment to improving the lives of these courageous children and their families, offering them a brighter future.”

The stamp’s design features a cheerful child’s face, accompanied by a QR code linking to a video that showcases key figures from the Department of Posts, paediatric oncologists, childhood cancer survivors, and caregivers discussing the importance of early detection in “Stamping Out Childhood Cancer.”

The ‘Stamp Out Childhood Cancer’ initiative embodies the spirit of unity and compassion, sparking conversations, evoking kindness, and enriching the well-being of society as a whole. With this unique partnership between Apollo Cancer Centres and India Post, the fight against childhood cancer has found a powerful new ally.
