To accelerate the fight against cancer and to spread awareness, Medicover Cancer Institute organized a Cancer awareness walk to commemorate World Cancer Day 2022.
Supporting the message of “Close the care gap”, a large number of participants were encouraged to be a part of this session and emphasize self-care through yoga. The session continued in the morning from 8.00 am to 9.00 am.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Srinivas Juluri- Surgical Oncologist stated that “Cancer is a leading cause of death in our country accounting for as much as 8.5 lakhs in the last year. The condition often creates fear which comes out of ignorance and misconception. More than 30% of cancer cases could be prevented by modifying lifestyles or avoiding key risk factors. This can be achieved only by creating awareness and encouraging self-care.”
Dr. Saadvik Raghuram- Medical Oncologist thanked all the participants and said, “we need to create more awareness so that people understand the risks of cancer and avoid the complications through timely screening. The screenings can help prevent cancer even before it starts and reduce the complexity of cases that occur due to late diagnosis.”
The event culminated with all the participants taking an oath to modify their lifestyles for a healthier tomorrow.
Medicover is actively engaged in activities and programs that generate awareness and try to bring a positive impact in the world of cancer treatment.
