Episode 1,  Oct 23, 2020, 01:32 AM

Good Morning, Namaskar, Aadab, Sat Shri Akal. My name is Vivek Sharma and I have brought to you a brand-new series called VIOCE. And, I’m sure when you saw its banner first, you would have thought it has a spelling mistake but friends it’s not a spelling mistake. You’ll come to know in the upcoming episodes that why it is not a spelling mistake, what is the meaning of it and what is its purpose.

The broad objective of this whole program is to bring clarity about cancer and its treatment in the lives of people, cancer patients, and their caregivers. 

Friends, there is a lot of ambiguity because none of us assumes that we’ll go through cancer so obviously we are not prepared for that. And, when such a big thing happens or a kind of draining type of disease happens, we just don’t understand what should we do and how?

At this point in time, we need the right clarity, the right consultation, and the right guidance.  This program of ours called VIOCE will act as a guide for you and will empower you as you must have realized in the tagline of its logo, it says Empowering Cancer Patients. So, this program is created to empower cancer patients and their caregivers. 

In this program, you’ll meet top shots and well-known oncologists and we’ll learn from them that what this disease is and how can we tackle it the right way. 

Friends if you have any inspiring story which I’m sure must-have like you have gone through cancer and survived and contributed to the lives of others; please make your story reach us through your doctor and do share with them that this is a platform where we talk of empowering cancer patients. 

So, stay tuned. I’ll see you soon with an interesting and informative episode. Till then, take care of yourself, stay home, stay safe, stay healthy.
