Nearly 150 cancer survivors and their near & dear ones today bonded with their doctors and nurses over film and popcorn as they enjoyed themselves at an exclusive screening of the latest film ‘Housefull 3’ organised for them by Saarthak, the Cancer Support Group of Fortis Cancer Institute, Mohali, at a city-based mall multiplex.
The get-together of the Cancer Survivors was done to celebrate the Cancer Survivors Day that is celebrated worldwide to ‘demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality’. The cancer survivors thoroughly enjoyed the movie as well as the snacks served to them. “When you are faced with this dreaded disease, your life changes dramatically and you tend to become depressed and full of selfpity,” stated a young Manpreet Singh, who was diagnosed with cancer and underwent treatment at Fortis.
Swaran Kaur, a survivor of breast cancer, said: “All of us are so thankful to Fortis for bringing us here in this happy environment. All of us forgot our troubles over the last few hours. As important, we met other survivors and were able to exchange viewpoints and experiences which has done wonders to us psychologically and helped strengthen our resolve to fight this disease.”
