Arjun Kapoor To Extend Support To 100 Cancer Couples This Valentine’s Day, : We can save them from draining out financially, said the actor.
The Macho Man and an amazing actor, Arjun Kapoor whose mother passed away due to cancer on March 25, 2012, has remained a strong advocate to raise awareness and pledge support to people who are affected by the deadly disease. For this initiative, Arjun has teamed up with the Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA).
The actor urged people to come forward and support these vulnerable couples. Arjun said, “By supporting their yearly medical treatment worth Rs 1 lakh per patient that takes care of expenses for chemotherapy and radiotherapies, surgeries and medicines, we can save them from draining out financially.”
Speaking about the initiative, Arjun said, “The pandemic has taught all of us the importance of helping one another and spreading love whenever we can. We all look forward to celebrating Valentine’s month in February, to make our loved ones feel special. But I have decided to do something different, this time.Along with Cancer Patients Aid Association, I am supporting medical treatment for 100 underprivileged couples who are impacted by cancer, which means one partner is battling this deadly disease as the other one is supportive in every step of this fight.”
Arjun, who has been deeply moved by the noble initiative, immediately decided to come forward for the same. He said, “Cancer severely impacts one’s immunity, making them extremely vulnerable to the coronavirus. The previous year has been very painful for these couples. Not only were they fighting a hard battle, but they were also confined to their homes facing the severe threat of Covid-19. Many of them did not even have the source of income to buy food and essential medicines.”
On Workfront, Arjun will soon be seen in the upcoming movie named Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar along with Parineeti Chopra, Ek Villain Returns and Bhoot Police.
