The diagnosis came as a shock
The whole family was shocked as she was the powerhouse of the family. When we consulted doctors regarding treatment, different doctors gave different opinions. Finally, we decided to go ahead with AIIMs Delhi for Cancer treatment.
Treatment and side effects
The treatment started with Chemotherapy sessions. We were not at all aware of the side effects of chemotherapy. She suffered from depression in the first cycle itself. I must say that the doctors were excellent at AIIMS; they played a vital role in the healing process of both my mother and me. After six chemotherapy sessions, Surgery was performed, and then another two chemo cycles were performed. Finally, when we thought she was Cancer free, Cancer knocked on the door again in March 2021. Again six chemo cycles were delivered. She is still a cancer fighter.
Dr Mohit says it is essential to stay positive no matter what is thrown at you. Think Positive, stay positive.

Cancer is not a taboo. It is a curable disease. Follow a strict diet plan. Be positive and listen to your doctor. Positivity plays a very important role in the fight against cancer. Always remember one thing that if you have started the fight dont leave it midway. You will definitely win.
