On 4-2-2012 the palliative team from Jeyasekharan Medical Trust svisited 6 patients around kanyakumari district at their homes. The patients and their families were very happy to receive us. A patient, 39 years / male at South Kundal at Kanyakumari diagnosed with colon cancer with Secondaries to liver, pancreas etc. had passed away when we were on the tour.

We visited the bereaved family in the evening and offered our condolences on behalf of our palliative team and our trust. In the evening the movie “Life before death” was shown in the hospital auditorium, sponsored by Mr.Senthil Kumar (Sri Ram Cancer Trust).
