They Beat Cancer, Now Help Others Conquer It

Cancer survivors – turned – counselors are making a huge difference to patients across city hospitals

Cancer patients from several Mumbai hospitals, including the Tata Memorial Centre, Breach Candy, Saifee and Hinduja have been frequenting Byculla’s Prince Aly Khan Hospital, where a team of cancer survivors encourage and guide them.

The cancer rehabilitation centre at the hospital is handled by a team of 20 volunteers, of which 12 are cancer survivors. They share with the patients how they handled the side effects of medicines, the chemotherapy sessions and the resultant hair loss, how they overcame the stigma of wearing a wig and the prosthesis, and the feel good food and exercises post chemo.
