Mumbai, (ANI): Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Tuesday visited the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai to spend time with children suffering from cancer. Khan, who was on his third visit to the hospital, lauded the spirit of the young cancer patients and asked media to highlight their plight on the occasion of ''World Lymphoma Day''.
“Whenever I come here I see these children, despite being so weak and living with such a disease, there is always a smile on their faces. But, if the same thing happens to any one of us, then it will be flashed all over the media and becomes a big news," said Khan. The actor also appealed to the rich to donate liberally to help out the cancer patients who cannot afford costly treatment.
“There are many people who cannot afford the expensive treatment involved to cure the disease. However, there are others who have plenty of money and they should open their locker and come forward and donate money for such a cause," said Khan.
Salman Khan has regularly been associated with a number of organisations supporting social causes. He will also be seen in 30 public-awareness short films produced to highlight public issues. These films will have Khan addressing the public on social issues including drug abuse and care for the old.
