Dimple, co-founder of the support group Love Heals Cancer, told indianexpress.com, “The treatment for some patients has been stopped; the respective doctor has to take a call on whether it needs to be continued or not, depending on the urgency. But patients are scared and anxious about their treatment being delayed. Of course they cannot travel if they want to get treatment in some other city. There are elderly patients whose children might be in another city at the moment, so caretaking is also a challenge.”

“He was an amazing man. We first met at a conference, and realised that we were in the same college. Initially when we started getting close, he told me everything– he had financial problems and things at home weren’t good. I was the only person he could ‘talk’ to and I was just drawn to him.
Around that time he fell really sick, and it got worse every day. One day, he went to the doctor and when he came back, he didn’t utter a word. He just packed his bags and went to his hometown. That evening he called me and said, ‘I have stage 3 cancer’. I was shocked, but that’s also when I realised that I liked him.
