Chronicling The Healers

By Shiyas Ahamed

One month, four states, five amazing lives. For me, it was a revelation, looking through the camera lens at these doctors who have selflessly dedicated their lives to healing people with one of the most terrifying and morale-sapping diseases the world has ever seen: cancer. I have often felt that cancer is one of those diseases that kill you before it actually does; the mere diagnosis sometimes taking away the will to fight for survival. This is why what these doctors do is even more magical: working as healers of the body and the mind, boosting patients’ morale and inspiring them to fight the disease with all their might. This journey has changed my life in many ways; it has taught me perseverance, resilience, and the importance of giving back much more. It has opened my eyes to the beauty in the mundane.

The biggest weapon in the fight against cancer is you. Not being cowed by the diagnosis, not being bullied by the disease, not giving up on life: this is what matters

Find happiness in the little things life has to offer. Living in the here and now is perhaps the only way to be. Create your own happy space.

Reflect on who you are

The essence of who you are is not defined by
an ailment. Taking a trip down memory lane can
help you rejuvenate and reclaim your spirit.

The Colours of Hope

Sunset is full of promise; it reminds you that brighter dawn awaits you tomorrow. That you can survive the darkness. That no matter how long the night is, it will eventually end.
