BIG 92.7 FM, Bangalore, in its continued efforts to contribute to the society and impact listeners lives in a positive manner, celebrated ‘World Cancer Day’ with a difference. With an aim to spread awareness about cancer prevention, the station initiated an on-air and on-ground activity. They spoke about various methods of preventing this deadly disease and also interacted with cancer patients and prominent doctors across the city.
As part of the station’s on-ground activity, BIG FM’s RJ Rohith visited a Bangalore Hospice Trust called ‘Karunashraya’ located on the outskirts. This centre spread provides in-patient care for over 35 terminal cancer patients. RJ Rohith brought some cheer to these patients by entertaining them with his popular pranks. He even got a few of them to sing their favourite tunes. Special song requests and dedications made by these patients were also catered to.
BIG 92.7 FM’s RJ Rohith says “This experience has renewed my sense of commitment towards society. Interacting with the patients was a reality check. On World Cancer Day, these are the kind of people we can look to as role models. People who are so uncertain of their future and yet to so happy and cheerful in their outlook to life.”
