You Are Not Alone…
This is part of a noble gesture to educate the public about the social stigmas associated with cancer. Temporary hair loss is associated with certain types of cancer drugs. This phase of treatment usually is very depressive for the patients. They shun themselves away from social life since they feel that their baldness brands them as a cancer patient. Through this program, we intend to make baldness a style statement and not something to detest. Around 45 KIMS family members expressed their solidarity to cancer patients through this program to emphasize the fact that such patients are not alone in their fight against cancer. The event conducted on World Cancer Day (04th Feb) at KIMS Cancer Center.
