While speaking to Amitabh Bachchan on the show KBC 11 last year, Emraan Haashmi recounted the days when his son was in remission and said, “My son Ayaan’s remission phase – during which the cancer might make a comeback – was a tough phase for us as we parents go through a lot of fear psychosis. The whole process is psychologically disturbing.”

Emraan added, “While researching about the disease, I got to know that nutrition plays an important role in the treatment as the body needs a strong immune system while going through the treatment. Even after the medical treatment, we have to focus on follow-up care, which involves proper nutrition and the well-being of a person, which has been the focal point of Cuddle foundation.”

Hashmi said, “I have been following Purnota’s work since many years because my son was diagnosed with cancer five years ago and later my mother too became a victim of the disease. A family is emotionally devastated when somebody from that family is diagnosed with cancer.”
