Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) has launched a new initiative in collaboration with Hamad Hospital and the National Centre for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR), to visit cancer patients in hospital.
The initiative will provide psychological support for cancer patients and make a positive impact on treatment.
Maryam Hamad al-Noaimi, General Manager at QCS, said: “This initiative emphasises the charity’s keenness to play its role both psychologically and physically.”
She pointed out the importance of psychological support during cancer and that the visits help patients cope with treatment with great patience and determination. “These visits aim to raise the community’s awareness of cancer and remove the fear and shame associated with it to emphasise that, like any other disease, cancer can be cured.”
