There is a ‘CAN’ in cancer’ – SSGCWA event underscores the point
There is a can in Cancer’ which means that with plenty of will power and determination, a cancer patient can combat this disease. This was spoken by Asma Butt, President, SSGC Women’s Association (SSGCWA) while talking to the media at an event organized by SSGCWA at the SSGC Head Office Auditorium to create awareness about breast cancers and other forms of this malignant disease. A number of women suffering from cancer were especially invited to encourage them to conquer the disease. On the occasion, a specially scripted in-house play on cancer and its treatment and negative effects caused in children from prolonged use of mobile phones, was also staged. The play underscored the point that growing use of mobile phones can cause medical conditions such as brain tumour. The interesting play was written and directed by IT Department’s Rashid Ahmed with Company executives Asim, Zahoor, Kainaat, Rozina and other performers doing full justice with the script with flawless performances. The event was also marked by a Darvesh Turkish Dance performance. While talking to the media, President, SSGCWA said that she too was once a cancer patient but thanks to Allah she was able to fight out this deadly disease. She said that one of the primary reasons for staging this event was to underscore the point that cancer is now curable and treatable.
