Celebrating Life #1 : Love Heals Cancer

Hey, I am Nishika. I'm a budding writer and enthusiastically explore different areas. I always try to keep myself motivated and enjoy life.


It is said that when two people are truly in love and are best for each other, they have to face greater obstacles to be together. Dimple and Nitesh had to face such hurdles too.

Dimple Parmar and Nitish Prajapat were pursuing MBA from IIM - Calcutta. Their casual conversations around work turned into a deep bond. Soon enough Dimple realized that she was purely in love with Nitesh.

Things were normal until the day when Nitesh was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer.
Despite knowing the fact that Nitesh was suffering from a deadly disease, Dimple agreed to marry Nitesh and was ready to fight all the battles to spend her entire life with him.


All those days of misery were not easy for them but wishes and blessings from thousands of people kept them going. Soon after Nitesh was able to defeat cancer with help of Dimple's emotional support and treatment, the couple got married on the day they got graduated. Unfortunately, two months after their marriage cancer reverted. This time the doctors had detected 12 tumors in Nitesh and after six months of suffering, he deceased in March 2018.

After Nitesh passed away, instead of mourning and crying over the situation, Dimple dedicated her life to helping and supporting people going through the same loss. She understood the power of love and care and found her way of celebrating life.


To spread the same, she quit her job and underwent counseling training to start her own NGO - "Love Heals Cancer", as a tribute to her husband.

Love Heals Cancer strives to provide multiple healing services to cancer patients and their family members, for free. For people based outside Mumbai, the NGO delivers services through video and telephone calls. So far, it has provided counseling services to more than 1,000 patients across India.


Love Heals Cancer became Dimple's source of keeping her love alive and she chose to celebrate her life by spreading love and care to cancer patients through her free sessions which are commendable.
