Action @ Chennai

In Chennai the nurses are getting ready for day’s chemotherapy at the centre and patients are beginning to come in. The Lab is busy getting ready the tests while the housekeeping staff has already kept the place spik and span. An educator is rushing to a school to enlighten children the measures to prevent cancer and women have commenced their journey to reach the centre to learn breast cancer basics and avail a free mammogram. The manager is in terrible hurry attending calls, getting cheques ready, organizing appointments and running errands. And a  postman knocks to reach a measure of support from somewhere
