Despite severe chemotherapy sessions after the surgery, Chowdhury and Palattao continued to do what they used to do before they were diagnosed. They would return to their jobs after the chemotherapy session. Seeing their treatment working in the right direction further boosted their morale. Thanks to their positive outlook in addition to the quality of treatment.
For Chowdhury and Palattao, treatment was like removal of some impurities out of their bodies and this is what kept them going. They kept stress at bay by their positive outlook and achieved success to live a cancer-free life.
