My mother died of cancer when I was just 25 and she only 50. I understand how devastating cancer is, how much fear it invokes and the suffering involved.
Cancer, which was a rarity in the past, has become ubiquitous now. Almost everyone has a family member with cancer. The treatment is as painful to the body as it is to the pocket, and it looks like there’s really no way out. On hearing the diagnosis ‘cancer’, the immediate response is one of panic. Family and friends get somewhat desperate to explore every sort of curative solution. Everyone becomes a therapist or counsellor.
I believe it is crucial to demystify this dreadful disease so we have clarity on its prevention even before its onset. And if it has already set in, we can at least have the know-how on how to select the most appropriate line of action.
Join me, Dr Nandita Shah, for an informative talk to clearly understand what cancer is, why it is so common these days, and what you can do to prevent it. You can also gain an insight into what chemotherapy and radiotherapy actually are, the pros and cons, and what you can do to heal effectively regardless of your line of treatment.
The talk is open to all with the hope of reducing cancer incidences and promoting survival rates.
Though this talk is FREE, registration is a must as seats are limited.
