Krithi Shetty speaking on the occasion said, as a child I aspired to be a doctor, someone like Dr Vijay Anand Reddy, because he is not only giving back to the society as a doctor, but is going out of the way to support the little kids, that is something which is great as a human one can do to another human needing help, that way he is the true super hero. The doctors and frontline healthcare workers are the real heroes and heroines because they selflessly provide service to patients. We witnessed this even during Covid, while we were protecting ourselves by sitting at home, they risked their lives and gave us life, which is what I wanted to do as a kid by being a doctor. It warms my heart by seeing your dedicated work Dr Vijay Anand Reddy, it inspires me so much, please continue doing this, inspiring everyone, spreading awareness about cancer, and curing these little kids. The greatest gift Dr Vijay Anand aspires is the smile on the face of the kid who got treated, there can be no better gift than that. I want more and more people to come forward to support this cause, it doesn’t matter how much you give, it’s all about the love with which you give, that’s the power in your hands to save lives. We fantasize about superheroes, presuming they are being powerful and have magic, so do we, we have the power to save lives, change lives, what are we waiting for, lets contribute our bit to help the society.
