“Cancer Prevention & Early Detection and Palliative Care sensitization campaign” with “Freedom from Pain Campaign”


In association with the Ayyappa Sewa Samiti, Dilshad Garden, DNipCare is organizing a “Cancer Prevention & Early Detection and Palliative Care sensitization campaign” at 10 AM on Independence Day, the 15th August 2011 in the Charitable Clinic of Shri Ayyappa Temple, R Pocket, Dilshad Garden, Delhi. The campaign will focus on the aspect of prevention and early detection of cancer especially in view of the ever increasing carcinogens in the atmosphere and change in life style of the people. The session will be handled by voluntary doctors of DNipCare. The volunteers of DNipCare through their experience sharing session will sensitize the audience on the efficacy of Palliative Care for not only the long term bedridden and terminally ill patients but to the elders in their twilight years in the metropolis of Delhi where the population is predominantly of nuclear families. Eminent people from all walks of life are expected to participate in the campaign.

Further, as a sequel to the year 2010’s “Freedom from Pain Campaign”, the volunteers and well wishers of DNipCare will celebrate Indian Independence Day this year also with the ailing Cancer Patients of Delhi State Cancer Institute, Dilshad Garden. Patients admitted in the hospital as well as those staying in the adjacent Sir Soba Singh Dharamshala will be visited by the volunteers and fruit juices distributed along with exchanging pleasantries as a part of the Independence Day celebrations and try to curb the emotional isolation they are going through without any festivals and festivities due to the advent of their disease.

All are requested to participate in the program, declare solidarity with “Freedom from Pain Campaign” and celebrate Independence Day with Cancer patients for whom festivals and festivities are taboo while entangled in the Chemo, Radio therapies and surgeries mingled with the advent of emotional isolation on deteriorating physical conditions and demoralizing mental agonies.
