World Cancer Day 2023 Theme: Close the Care Gap

World Cancer Day is celebrated across the world on February 4th of every year. It is an annual day marked to spread awareness about the disease, share information related to its diagnosis, prevention, and cure, and raise money to help people suffering from the disease. The theme for World Cancer Day 2023 being “Uniting our voices and taking action,” we must in great unison educate people on how to fight against the dangerous disease, support cancer victims in their challenging battles, and help them emerge victorious. “Closing the Care Gap” is a multi-year campaign for 2022-24 mainly with the motive to have a lasting impact and invest more energy and time to bring a change. World Cancer Day carries great importance for the very fact that many people on this day celebrate their win against cancer. On the other hand, some people remember the dear ones that they have lost to cancer. Thus, the day demands the solidarity of all human beings. To fight against cancer, spread awareness, and help those who are in this life-threatening battle, Apollo CBCC, a cancer hospital in Ahmedabad, puts heavy emphasis on the need for one to know the disease thoroughly. So, let us now dwell on what cancer is and ways to diagnose, prevent and treat it.

Dr Ankit Jitani and Dr Ekta Jajodia from Ahmedabad, who had to reconcile to a small temple wedding during lockdown, were struck by covid-19, recovered and are back on duty helping other patients. They also describe their experience of donating plasma. Read on:  Ekta and I had been in a long-distance relationship for over two years. I was a Clinical Hematology post-doctoral trainee at NRS Medical College, Kolkata, while Ekta, now my wife, was pursuing a post-doctoral fellowship programme in Molecular Hematology at Christian Medical College, Vellore. We had been eagerly looking forward to moving to the same city, getting married and starting our lives together. By the end of 2019, things had started to fall in place- I took up a job as a consultant at the Apollo CBCC Hospital in Ahmedabad while Ekta took up a position at Unipath Speciality Lab as a Molecular Pathologist. Finally, after so many tormenting years of being apart, we were in the same city; we couldn’t be more excited for what was ahead of us- a lovely wedding on 4th May, followed by a two-week honeymoon.
