Participating patients at the Mahavajiralongkorn Cancer
Center in Thailand, a division of the National Cancer Institute:
Many patients at this cancer center cannot afford psychotherapy. There is usually no entertainment available of any kind due to lack of resources. In this therapeutic project, members of cancer support groups watched their favorite Thai comedy films & television shows. Research Results: Improved sleep, noticeably less pain and depression. The control group did not experience these significant improvements.
We are deeply appreciative to each person shown below. Their courage and optimism are heroic.
