Support Services from BTF (Accomodation and Transport)

How do I manage living and commuting in the city (Mumbai)?

The treatment of brain tumour involves a lengthy process, which requires you to be close to the hospital. This can be a problem if you do not live, or have relatives, in Mumbai. Often those affected may face difficulties in movement, especially travelling in buses and trains while commuting to and from the hospital. Talk to the BTF staff and your hospital social workers about your problems. They will advise you about special buses organised by the hospital, and also suggest places you and your family can stay during the course of your treatment - of course, depending on your need and affordability.

A list of places for accommodation, their addresses, names of the person to contact, and charges, if any, are with the BTF staff.
