A collection of stories of cancer patients and their caregivers, compiled in a book authored by senior oncologist P.P. Bapsy, was released by Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda here on Saturday.

The collection titled Dream of Life seeks to capture the emotions of cancer patients and how they faced the crises related to this much-feared disease.

Commenting on the book, Dr. Bapsy said, “With experience of over three decades as a medical oncologist, I have seen many patients who have struggled with the disease. It is my endeavour to share a few true incidents that I presume will help boost the morale of patients diagnosed with cancer and their care givers ... [and] allay their fears.”
