Noted filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt unveiled a book titled ‘CanSurvive– Inspiring Stories of Those Who Beat Cancer’ at Fortis Cancer Institute in Mohali. The book features inspiring stories of 13 cancer survivors and their families who were present on the occasion. The event was graced by Dr Gurbir Singh, Regional Medical Director (North & East), Fortis Healthcare; Dr Rajeev Bedi, Director, Medical Oncology, Fortis Cancer Institute and Mr Abhijit Singh, Facility Director, Fortis Mohali.
After launching the book, Mahesh Bhatt said, “This is a commendable initiative to highlight how these brave-hearts put up a glowing fight against this dreaded menace & won. While it is important to acknowledge the clear and present danger of cancer lurking in our lives today, it is vital that we don’t lose our hearts and fight against cancer. The inspirational tales written in this book will surely help us embolden our determination to put up a brave fight against cancer.”
It is clearly evident that this initiative taken by Mr. Bhatt was inspired by his experience when Ayaan, his grand-nephew & young son of leading actor Emraan Hashmi, was diagnosed with cancer. He said, Ayaan’s story has an exhilarating, happy ending. We are the stories we are raised with. Here, in this book, you will find innumerable inspiring stories of those who triumphed over cancer, with courage and dignity, and have generously shared their most personal experiences with the rest of the world.”
