Bone Cancer (Tamil)

Bone cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor of the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not all bone tumors are malignant. In fact, benign (noncancerous) bone tumors are more common than malignant ones. Both malignant and benign bone tumors may grow and compress healthy bone tissue, but benign tumors do not spread, do not destroy bone tissue, and are rarely a threat to life.

These people were entirely neglected by the mainstream media. <br />To allow and encourage the widest possible community usage through broadcast and participation and to inform and entertain people in the community so as to serve the people in times of emergencyHoly Cross College installed a HCCCR 90.4 MHz toserve society.</p>

<p>Signature Programme: Thagaval Kalanjyam, Oorvalam, Pudhiya Jananam, Muthukkul Sirpi. Community Participation: Holy Cross Community Radio has a close relationship with the community and engages with the community in the generation of ideas for programmes. The regular contacts with the community also assure constructive feedback to influence future programmes. Community listeners are engaged in story telling with their music presentation. There is also a process of oral history and folklore being documented by the radio. Listeners are invited to join a script writing competition and the best scripts are chosen for programmes that are aired by the Community Radio. In doing so, Holy Cross Community Radio has given the communities space to tell their own stories. Four communities at Jeevanagar, Dharmanathapuram, Kalnayakan Street and Kolathamedu have been adopted. The beneficiaries are also involved in the programme execution. The major objective is to empower them by capacity building to give voice to the voiceless.</p>

<p>Funding and Partnerships The radio is funded by the Holy Cross College. The management has so far taken care of all funding requirements, while tie ups with NGO are being explored for further funding. The special programme focussed on underprivileged women from the slums is funded by the Holy Cross College management. Two specific projects, namely Science for Women and Planet Earth are funded by the Department of Science and Technology.</p>

<p>A lesson learnt is that a Community Radio Station can bring a big change in attitudes of people and even transform individuals. While programmes aired by Holy Cross Community Radio have impacted the community to a great extent, it is important to mention one case where it transformed the personality of an individual, Community Radio Station manager Geetha lakshmi.</p>
