Support initiative for cancer patients

The Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) has launched “Step of Hope”, an initiative to provide psycho-social support for individuals living with cancer, as well as emphasising the importance of a healthy lifestyle such as exercise and healthy food to prevent disease.

During the “Step of Hope” initiative, an individual living with colorectal cancer walks about 555km in 15 days in the first stage and reaches 2,022km at a later stage.

Mohamed Shaaban, the initiator, said: “This initiative aims to emphasise the importance of psychological support for this group, which will help them overcome the treatment stage with patience and determination.”

“The initiative also aims to raise awareness among people of cancer prevention by leading a healthy lifestyle,” he added.
