Ms Jyotsna Govil from Indian Cancer Society, Delhi, writes:

Indian Cancer Society has made a Cancer Awareness Film for the Deaf, using Indian Sign Language.

There is much excitement in the Deaf community here, as they finally understand what we take as  simple information.

We plan to release the film on 16 October at the Cancer Sahyog (Emotional Support) Seminar on Familial Cancers.

This Seminar will be at the PHD Chamber of Commerce Auditorium between 9am-1.30pm. The entire proceedings will be interpreted in ISL by qualified interpreters.

We hope to reach out to an hitherto unreached audience!

How to sign “Cancer” in Indian Sign Language:

Plenty more visual signs at Deafsigns.org and on Youtube. Learn about and find resources for learning ISL.
