Bharatanatyam students of Ms. Vidhya Venkatesan staged a classical Indian dance ballet “vandE krishnam” to raise funds for CIF.

The performance was captivating and the audience had a lot of praise for the students. We could appreciate the amount of work the students had put in to stage this show.

We want to thank Ms. Vidhya Venkatesan and her students for their efforts to raise funds for CIF. The money raised from this event will be used to fund Cancer Screening Center in Thiruvannamalai.

She also has valuable advice to young oncologists. “The younger generation must ensure that the wonderful technologic advances they have are used not because they are available, but because they add value and are cost-effective.” She also advises them to “Treat patients as individual human beings, not as a disease state. And do so with compassion.”
