Before the dawn Saturday brought us the news of sad demise of Mrs. Gayatri, the Cancer Patient of Dakshinpuri and one of our Palliative family members. Almost a year passed since our association with Gayatri started. She had been suffering from the disease for about 1½ years and the volunteers of DNipCare especially under the leadership of our vibrant volunteer Mr. Ajith Kumar were always there to be with her through the thick and thin of her suffering life, be it to provide medical and social support to her or even to be participants to the marriage of her daughter. Immense tragedies beginning with widowhood and later the tentacles of Cancer, nothing spared her. But Gayatri through her soft spoken attitude was fighting all the odds of her life. Finally she bid farewell to all her worries and issues on this day of 6th July 2013. We are grateful to all our volunteers especially Suresh Thaliyaril, Abdul Kareem, Nidhi Shukla, Jafar Ali etc., who were supporting her through DNipCare’s Palliative Home Care program.
During the noon of Saturday came the second shocking news of yet another sad demise, which was of Mr. Sheodasan Nair, the Cancer Patient of Gurgaon, a recently added Palliative family member of DNipCare. Our association with Nair started from February 2013 only through a reference from Mr. P.Sudarshan Nair, the President of Gurgaon Malayali Association. Despite the disease and illness associated with it, Nair was not only a brave front to face the disease, but also to resort to all the avenues and strengths for fighting it out. Caroline Arthur, Mansha Bagai, Sooraj Arangath, Namrata Singh, Seema Prasad, Bhumika Gupta, Kasturi Babu, Abdul Latheef, Ajith Mohan, Ajith Kumar etc. to name a few were there always to support Mr. Nair under DNipCare while he was undergoing treatment from Delhi State Cancer Institute.
Altogether, it was really a Sad Saturday on 6th July 2013.
Let us all pray for the eternal peace for the departed souls.
With warm regards,
General Secretary, DNipCare
