World Rose Day is annually celebrated on September 22nd in dedication to the welfare of cancer patients. Rose day is observed in memory of 12-year-old- Melinda Rose of Canada who when diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer, did not give up hope and touched the lives of those around her on a positive note, the remaining six months of her life. On this day, we share the story with our patients and motivate them to undergo treatment of cancer.
We distribute goodie bags comprising fruits, affirmation cards and roses to all our patients in Oncology Department. CCF works towards bringing cheer and hope into the lives of all those people who have been affected by cancer. We also remind our patients and their caregivers, that they are not alone in this battle against the deadly disease.
