Live the life to the fullest; Killing spirit of Cancer patient

Live the life to the fullest; Killing spirit of Cancer patient to fight back the disease and live the life optimally.

Our Salute to Mr. Bhaskar Moorthy for his perception of life even while suffering from Cancer.  

Belonging to the Palghat District of Kerala, Bhaskar is living in Uttam Nagar, Delhi for the last 12 years.  The Cancer, painful treatments thereon, a major Colostomy surgery and above all the social stigma of carrying the colostomy bag outside the body, nothing obstructs his motivation and spirit to involve himself in all the activities coming across.  

He is a magnificent presence in the activities of many of the social organizations in and around Uttam Nagar.  After so many years he recently visited his hometown in Palghat and actively got involved in all the temple rituals including plays locally known as ‘Angadivela’ of Sree Vettakurup Swami Temple of Thathamangalam.  Whether it is fancy dress competition, horse/elephant ride or even drum beating; Bhaskar has proven his mettle and got a place in the hearts of one and all.  

Of late the team of ‘Kannadi’, a news feature program of Asianet News Channel also got hint of him and done a 10 minutes telecast at 10 PM on 22nd June 2013 on Bhaskar’s story of seeing life in a different perspective. 

Bhaskar’s association with DNipCare started almost 18 months back prior to his 
undergoing Colostomy surgery.  However, the few days just before the surgery were very crucial for not only Bhaskar, but for us, the volunteers, for convincing him that life can move on its own pace despite the different stages of worries and tumults peeking in occasionally.  His courteous and respectful attitude towards one and all irrespective of the age endears him to everybody and the result is his large number of friends to support and care.  Let his life be a role model for all other ailing patients to follow and live a life full of happiness and satisfaction even when the disease is living with them as reluctant to leave guests.

All the best wishes to Bhaskar Moorthy

Cancer and Creativeness

Both Cancer and Creativeness start with 'C'.
Then why not be creative while suffering from Cancer?

Carcinoma Brain Post Operative, medical terms explain the painful story of Akansha Mukesh, a 30 years old slim beautiful lady in Sabji Mandi Ghanta Ghar area of Delhi.  It was very difficult to find out her house in that thickly populated colony, which is a part of the old Delhi.  We, the volunteers of DNipCare, ventured into and first the metro journey upto Pul Banghash, thereafter the cycle rikshaw ride through the bylanes we started our association with her from May 2012. 

During our interactions we could understand that she really possess a creative mind and had been into every art form for a little bit, whether it is drawing/painting or performing arts, but for the disease kept everything closed in the remotest corner of her mind. 
Our continuous efforts to relent her to bring back to her original self despite all the ill effects of the disease and resulting complications including lack of grip on the fingers right side hearing, was not seeing any results.  But our volunteer Seema  Prasad was not prepared to give up and used to encourage Akansha every time.  

When Sneha Kanta, Nongthong Singha, Abdul Latheef and me visited Akansha yesterday, i.e., 23rd June 2013, she brought out the sketch book which was cautiously kept inside a trunk under her bed.  To our utter surprise, the pages were full of sketches, drawings and paintings including those which were made by pasting the pencil waste on sharpening.  Beautiful scribbling, colourful flowers and cartoon characters merrily looking at us.  We felt contented that Akansha is not thinking of her next cycle of chemotherapy now, but looking for making more drawings and paintings.  We promised her that we will show her talent to the World through our small Blog and facebook page. 

Let us all encourage her to be busy in Creativity and forget the word Cancer.

Gen. Secretary, DNipCare
