"I have been wanting to give emotional support to cancer survivors for long. They have emerged as winners solely because of their positivity," Sudha Murgai, director, Roko Cancer Charitable Trust told IANS.

"At the club, they can do whatever they want. I want them to come together as one big family," Murgai said.

The club is dedicated to all those who have won the fight against the life-threatening disease and aims to support and guide those who have been recently diagnosed with cancer.

"We will organise yoga and meditation sessions for the survivors, take them for movies and also conduct workshops for them. We will also invite ideas from them to know what they would like to do," said Murgai.

The club will be open once in a month and has no membership fees.

The Roko Cancer Charitable Trust, which started its operations in India in 2005, is committed to identifying and eliminating breast, cervical and oral cancer through awareness.
