Rest in peace, Baby
2013 June 27
Ms Baby died very early in the morning on 16 June 2013.
She was one of our patients.
She was also one of our volunteers.
We came across her about 7 years back. She heard about Pallium India on the radio and called us from her home town which is about 100 kilometers away. We met up soon after. She was in a desperate situation, with severe breathlessness and agonising pain. We were able to take care of the symptoms, while the oncologists from the Regional Cancer Center kept her cancer under check.
Though suffering from her cancer-related symptoms, chemotherapy-induced heart failure, steroid-induced diabetes and a very difficult family situation, she continued to work as a volunteer, sending patients to us, helping patients to get Government grants and making sure that children of our patients got educational support from Pallium India when necessary.
We thank Sr Veronica, Dr Sr Elsa and their team at Fatima Hospital, Thumpa for their loving care to Baby in her last few days.
We are proud to have known you and worked with you, Baby. Rest in peace.
