Mrs. Usha Thorat, National Managing Trustee of the Indian Cancer Society, emphasized, "Cancer remains a pressing global health challenge, impacting the lives of millions in India and around the world. The proactive initiative by the ICS Delhi branch leverages the potential of mobile technology to offer comprehensive information and guidance to those affected by cancer and their families.
