Like the past few years, Bengal Oncology Foundation this year too arranged their annual unique awareness program on Cancer with survivors meet at Birla Sabhaghar.
This unique program has consisted of a panel discussion on the topic ‘Can Healthy people Be Affected By Cancer?’ The aim of the discussion was to increase the level of cancer awareness in Bengal. It is well established that more than half of the cancers are diagnosed at the late stages and the survival is poor. Cancer is usually asymptomatic at the early stages. Thus screenings of normal healthy individuals are necessary to detect cancer at the curable stage.
The audience consisted of about 500 cancer survivors and their families. The panelists included Dr. Pradip Mitra, Dr. Subir Ganguly, Agnimitra Paul, Satyajit Chatterjee, Secretary Mohon Bagan Athletic Club and Rukmini Maitra, Actress and model. The discussion was moderated by Badsha Maitra and DR. Gautam Mukhopadhyay. The discussion was less on technical aspects and emphasized more on social awareness.
The program concluded with a dance drama ‘Dhrubajyoti Tumi Jishu’ by Alokananda Ray and troupe which symbolized peace and re- incarnation of Jesus Christ.
“A man truly becomes human only when he tries to make others secure, comfortable & happy.” Keeping this motto in mind ARGOBBHAWVATM – Humanity Development officially launched their organization.
