If there is one defining expression that I would like HNCII to stand for, it is "touching lives with compassion".
The Institute deals with cancer. Patients and their families enter the hospital premises in a state of tremendous anxiety and mental devastation. At every step and stage where they encounter hospital personnel, there is an opportunity to ease their tension and worry by guiding them with kindness and reassuring words. The support staff, admin staff, nurses, technicians, and doctors can all play a very vital role in this. So, this is my humble appeal to all members of the HNCII family: let us make "compassion" a part of our persona so that it comes to us naturally and becomes the organisation’s culture.
