Actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar said, “I feel happy to be spending this birthday meaningfully here with the saviours – Doctors, who have been doing a heart-touching job of saving many cancer patients. We all think about Cancer when some of our close and dear ones are affected by it. We need not strain a lot or contribute something huge, but just Rs.10 can make a big difference in the lives of affected ones. I am emotional and elated to see that these cyclists, completed 1746 Km from Chennai to Kolkata to raise awareness for Cancer Care. I am so touched by the Sankalp and doctors for their life-saving gesture of curing many patients. It’s great to see many patients have been successfully operated, on and are returning to their normal lives. I request press and media channels to spread this news about cancer awareness, which will make a big difference in many lives.”
As a part of this program, actress Varalaxmi distributed groceries to the Cancer affected families and felicitated the cyclists who completed 1746 Km from Chennai to Kolkata to raise awareness on cancer care.
