More than two decades ago, Imran Khan embarked on the journey of realizing his dream of making cancer care accessible to the people of his country, regardless of their ability to pay. Hence, began the story of enduring love of a son for his mother and the passion of a nation.

The inspiration to build Shaukat Khanum Memorial cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) came after his mother, Mrs. Shaukat Khanum, succumbed to cancer in 1985. During his mothers illness he also witnessed the plight of poor cancer patients in the hospitals of Pakistan and deeply felt the need for a specialized cancer centre in his country. Being a developing country where the majority do not have access to even elementary health care facilities, cancer was considered the ultimate symbol of hopelessness. After receiving overwhelming support from generous donors, SKMCH&RC in Lahore opened doors to patients on December 29, 1994 and since then it is providing financially supported treatment to 75% of its cancer patients.

The establishment of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre laid down the foundation of hope for poor cancer patients in Pakistan. Today, this memorial is a tribute not just to one mother but also to hundreds of other people in whose memory donations have been given over the years. You can also be a part of this legacy of hope by creating a Memorial Fund in the name of your loved one and help us to save more lives.
