A power walk for cancer
Entrepreneur and social influencer, Dr Deepica Krishna, Director, Cancer Healer Center, presented the third season of 'Celebrate Life – The Lavender Ribbon Fiesta' – a charitable fundraiser to support the cause of cancer awareness in the Capital recently.
The splendid evening at Shangri-La's Eros Hotel saw a multi-designer 'Power Walk' showcasing exuberant collections by designers Joy Mitra, NikhitaTandon and Nitya Bajaj, accessorised with jewelry by Shri Hari Diagems. The fashion showing was followed by a silent auction featuring renowned designers, accessory labels and international brands, brought together by Deepica Krishna under the umbrella of 'The Lavender Ribbon Fiesta'.
Heartfelt and meaningful, the evening also saluted cancer survivors with an inspirational talk by Shiv Khera and Dr Tarang Krishna on how to thrive and find inspiration through a life changing illness. Dr Tarang has effectively worked towards helping innumerable patients through Immunotherapy, with a highly impressive success rate with patients responding to therapy, even in advance stages.
The lavender ribbon symbolises cancer awareness, many people ar aware of the pink ribbon, but not many know of the lavender ribbon. A lot of patients subside their pain and agree to take medical help only when it reaches a more advanced stage. Dr Deepica's message to people is that they should start taking those small symptoms seriously and visit a doctor.
Celebrate Life Season 3 also received immense support from social influencers and celebrities from different walks of life, with Ameesha Patel, Sonal Chauhan and Hussain Kuwajerwala attending the event to speak about the cause.
Sonal Chauhan said that more such shows must be held in order to encourage people to come forward and get treated as, "Cancer is something to which a lot of us have lost our loved ones."
Speaking at the occasion, Dr Deepica Krishna, said "Count your nights by stars not shadows, count your life with smiles not tears. I am extremely proud of Celebrate Life, a unique platform created over the last few years with a beautiful journey full of love and support by the most incredible people who surround me. Our endeavor to create cancer awareness and give millions of people hope, love and strength has kept me going and today we reach the hearts of many, all over the world! I hope to continue down this path and help people celebrate life."
"Strong will power, determination to fight and correct treatment makes you win over cancer. Our Cancer Healer Center has been working tirelessly for cancer patients and bringing about a better quality of life in all cancer patients, with effective results," said Dr Tarang Krishna.
