This picture is from the day of my 12th and last chemotherapy session! It’s an unforgettable date. 5 January 2019. The cotton swab on the shoulder blade is of the port. And the nurse in green is holding a box of chocolates that I gifted them, expressing my sincere gratitude! big thanks to all my doctors especially Dr Mandar Nadkarni. If this wouldn’t be COVID-19 times, I would have personally visited to meet the doctors and nurses with another box of chocolates who are frontline warriors taking care of all of us!”
