Nadoja G Shanker Donates Rs 73 Lakh to KMC Cancer Patients on 64th Birthday

Mangaluru: Every year Nadoja Dr G Shankar celebrates his birthday in a unique way. Most of the rich people celebrate their birthday’s in hotels throwing lavish parties but Dr G Shankar spends money for the treatment of poor cancer and kidney patients so that they too will be able to lead a healthy and happy life.

To mark his 64th birthday, Dr G Shankar has donated Rs 2 crores to the poor and marginalized people in Dakshina Kannada. On October 4, Rs 73 lakh was donated to cancer and kidney patients at the KMC Hospital, Attavar during a cheque distribution programme was held at the Shushrutha Hall.

The programme began with an invocation. Dr Harsha Prasada Children cancer specialist( Pediatric Hematologist Oncologist). The programme was inaugurated by Nadoja Dr G Shankar by lighting the traditional lamp along with other dignitaries.

Addressing the gathering Dr G Shanker said, “From the past 4 years I am helping cancer and Kidney patients in my capacity. Today we are distributing nearly Rs 2 crore at the KMC Attavar, Fr Muller Hospital and Wenlock Hospital in Mangaluru. Tomorrow we will be doing the same in KMC Hospital Manipal, Adarsh Hospital and the government hospital in Udupi.”

Dr G Shankar further said, “It is shocking to hear that Cancer is a deadly disease. But now there is treatment for the disease and through PET scan the doctors can find out which part of the body is affected by cancer. Through this scan, doctors can treat the particular area and cure the patient. I know that the treatment is expensive but this is a small contribution from my side. Every year on my birthday I do my part to financially support the poor patients. Those who born on this earth will have to die one day but we should support those who suffer from cancer and help them to fight the disease and recover. People jump from the Netravati river and die, there are various reasons due to which people die, death is not in our hands. Family members should help and encourage the patients in their fight against the disease. KMC hospital and G Shankar trust are always with you. Don’t lose hope”.
