Lives Impacted: 200+

This World Cancer Day, the Wishing Tree bore fruit.

This World Cancer Day, Aster Volunteers across Aster Hospitals from Kolhapur, Qatar, Calicut, Kottakkal, Oman, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Kochi took up a big task - to put smiles on the faces of our little patients.

Aster Volunteers conducted the Wishing Tree campaign over multiple locations across India and the Middle East. The initiative aimed to fulfill the wishes of young cancer patients being treated at Aster Hospitals.

And that's not all, Aster Volunteers held a talkathon at St. Theresa's hospital. We also gave cancer a run for its money with a walkathon. And we drove an awareness campaign I Am and I Will and even helped cancer survivors strut their stuff at a fashion show. What's more, we even got famous volleyball player, David Lee to participate in our Cancer Smash programme.
