Collaboration with TEFF-JSMU


 Mar 22, 2024

Cancer often brings along its own set of challenges, including battling the ailment itself, as well its invasive treatment procedures. Clothing, for those battling this illness, is one aspect that is often overlooked. Many women have to wear certain fabrics to not irritate their skin, featuring front-open enclosures for ease in the treatment process. They may not be as fashionable or trendy, and the women can feel isolated in having to acquire such garments on their own.

The team at SHINE Humanity understood this issue and tackled it head-on. We wanted to make women feel comfortable during their treatment by finding the appropriate fabric, and stitching these front-open gowns.

At JPMC, SHINE Humanity distributed customized boxes, including tailor-made gowns, caps, and scarves, to the Tumor Board Establishment Facilitation Forum (TEFF – JSMU chapter) team. TEFF is a student-run organization whose primary goal is to improve cancer care for patients and spread cancer awareness, and has been distributing caps and gowns to the patients as an initiative of their own. With the help of SHINE, their end-of-treatment gift to the patients is now enhanced with the addition of these gowns.

The ceremony was attended by Dr Tariq Mahmood, Head of Department of Radiology, Cyberknife Robotic Radiosurgery & Oncology at JPMC, and Dr. Fatima Shaukat, consultant radiation oncologist at CyberKnife, JPMC and supervisor of the TEFF - JSMU chapter.

This initiative brings a new journey in SHINE’s path of social responsibility, as we aim to uplift individuals on a holistic level.
