Guwahati: Cancer is a challenge. It is a disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue which can result in tumors, damage to the immune system, and other impairment that can be fatal if not treated timely. Cancer not only affects the patient but also it affects the family emotionally, financially and socially. A cancer patient needs special care and attention of modern medical science and emotional support. Keeping this view in mind a group of cancer specialists comes up with an idea of establishing an institute – viz. Oriental Cancer Institute (a unit of Midland Hospital) at Guwahati, Assam. It is blending of modern medical science and spirituality. Treatment of cancer is a costly affair but we at Oriental Cancer Institute have come up with innovative ideas to make treatment affordable to all sections of society. 4th February is World Cancer Day the global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) which has grown into a positive movement for everyone, everywhere to unite under one voice to face one of our greatest challenges in history. 2020 World Cancer Day's theme, 'I Am and I Will', is all about us and our commitment to act. We believe that through our positive actions, together we can reach the target of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and non-communicable diseases by one third by 2030.

Oriental Cancer Institute (A Unit of Midland Hospital) observe World Cancer Day 2020 on 3rd February Monday, through awareness cum interaction meeting at Press Club at 11:00 AM.
