The society has been able to extend their services to the cancer afflicted from the five Provinces that it serves, and also in the periphery of Kandy. The activities carried out by the society are:

Cancer Education and Awareness Programmes:
We strive in every possible way to bring Cancer awareness to the general public, mainly that cancer is curable if detected early. Schools, Government and Non-Government institutions and various other organizations are educated through workshops conducted by leading oncologists from the Cancer Unit of the General Hospital in Kandy. Nursing staff and volunteers too follow refresher courses often.

Counseling services:
To assist doctors, Counsellors provide their services voluntarily, to help those diagnosed cope with the devastating news. These services are also provided to patients families as well, to help them cope with situation.

Other services provided by the society are the Foster Parent Scheme, providing facilities for overnight stay, drug fund (for urgent medical supplies), and a Baby Ward to name a few.
