There is a stigma attached to cancer that it means certain death, but we need to reject this notion that cancer has no answer Over the years, great advancement in medicine and technology have revolutionised the field of oncology and survival chances of patients have improved drastically in case of early detection of the disease

“There is a stigma attached to cancer that it means certain death, but we need to reject this notion that cancer has no answer. Over the years, great advancement in medicine and technology have revolutionised the field of oncology and survival chances of patients have improved drastically in case of early detection of the disease.

But it is annoying to see that there has not been an iota of change in the mindset of the people,” says Dr Suneetha Mulinti, Radiation Oncologist while launching her books ‘25 Hope Street’ / ‘GelupuKiranalu’ at Saptaparni in Hyderabad.

According to Dr Suneetha, “More than the diagnosis it is the words that kill them. Even in this age of information the first time I meet a patient I have to spend considerable time in debunking these myths about cancer and its treatment.”

“I hope this book will ease the fear and anxiety of the patients, family and care givers. It is not meant for only patients and their near and dear ones but also aimed at raising awareness among general public. If you really want to help a cancer patient bring food, do some of the chores or accompany him or her during their visits to the hospital. They simply need a hand to hold, an ear to listen and a heart to understand their woes with compassion.”

“However, this book is not a list of Do’s and Don’ts about cancer but narrated as a series of stories which touches your heart,” she adds.
