As part of the ‘Kerala Can’ initiative, a joint social initiative undertaken by the Believers Church Medical College Hospital and Manorama News to spread awareness against cancer, a free cancer diagnosis camp was held at the Believers Church Medial College Hospital on 8 February 2020.
The camp was organised for cancer survivors and for the general public. An essential feature of this camp was that the latest iBreast exam technology was used to initially screen women patients for breast malignancy. Those who tested positive were screened further using ultrasound or mammography. Abdominal ultrasounds and papsmear tests were also conducted for patients free of cost. Around 300 patients availed the benefit of this free camp.
Around 1,000 people attended the inaugural function of the Kerala Can initiative held at the hospital. HH Moran Mor Athanasius Yohan I Metropolitan inaugurated the event. Actress Smt. Manju Warrier, the brand ambassador of Kerala CAN initiative, spoke on the occasion.
Delivering the inaugural address, HH Mor Athanasius Yohan I Metropolitan said, “The purpose of life is to give others an opportunity to live through us”. “To understand this, one only needs to visit the cancer hospitals. When we directly interact with the patients, know their problems and console them, our lives become meaningful” he added.
Shri. Mathew T. Thomas, former minister for water resources delivered the presidential address. Actor Krishna Prasad, Believers Church medical college hospital director Dr George Chandy Matteethra and Manorama News senior coordinating editor Romy Mathew also spoke at the event.
