Minister Radheshyam interacts with cancer patients on Rose Day

Imphal: Education minister Thokchom Radheshyam interacted with cancer patients at Regional Cancer Centre, Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal on the occasion of World Rose Day 2020 organised by Radiation Oncology department of the institute.

World Rose Day is observed on September 22 in memory of 12-year-old Melinda Rose from Canada who was diagnosed with Askin's Tumour, a rare form of blood cancer and her efforts to bring cheer and hope into the lives of other patients, even in the face of her own disease.
Thokchom Radheshyam said doctors are like demigod
as they have a few great qualities different from others. Doctors see, listen and feel what others
didn’t and give their best effort to take care of their patients during treatment, he added.
Quoting the sentence “love can open all the gates”, the minister said patients should be given utmost care and love by all to imbibe strength, bring cheer and hope into their lives. It is the doctors who devote most part of their life rendering service in treatment of their patients, he said.
He appealed the public not to blame the doctors, in case of occurrence of any untoward incidents, despite
sincere efforts and attempts on their part.
The minister presented roses and gifts to the cancer patient wishing for their good health.
A short interaction between the minister and the post graduate students of the Radiation Oncology department followed the observance function, whereby the minister gave certain motivating words to the students and wished for their bright future.
RIMS director, Prof. A. Santa Singh, medical superintendent Prof. Ch. Arun Kumar Singh, professors of the department, post graduate students and other staff of the department attended the function.
