Celebrating Childhood Cancer Survivorship

International Women’s Month
Crystal Ballroom, Crowne Plaza Rohini Nov 17 - Nov 17, 2017 Past

Department of Pediatric Hematology Oncology, RGCIRC

The Department of Pediatric Hematology Oncology of RGCIRC organized a childhood cancer survivorship program “Celebrating Life 2017” on Saturday, 18th November 2017, at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Rohini, Delhi, with its focus on raising awareness among the childhood cancer survivors about ways to stay healthy after beating it. The event was a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families and an outreach to the community.


The event was marked with an introductory note on “Staying Healthy after Childhood Cancer” by Dr. Sandeep Jain, Consultant – Pediatric Hematology Oncology. The get together was designed with the intent of bringing the survivors together and giving them an opportunity to share and connect with those who have been through the same experience. This created an environment of trust and support for the children who have survived this disease and their family.





The event was marked with a series of dance performances by children, drama/skit, a career counseling session, life skills session by a professional life coach, and a musical performance. The survivors and their families received knowledge and information in an environment of fun and relaxation in stalls that offered Body & Nail Art, Tattoos, Selfie Clicking and a Career Counseling Desk to help them explore options for a bright future.

The cultural program ended with an exhilarating fashion show where the participating children and young adults walked the ramp with fervor and confidence; defying all odds. At the end closing remarks and vote of thanks were delivered by Dr. Gauri Kapoor, Medical Director – RGCIRC, Niti Bagh and Director – Pediatric Hematology Oncology.
