The logo is an amalgamation of three widely known and recognizable icons. First of which is a “Heart” icon which symbolizes love and care. The second, of a ribbon tied in a knot which symbolizes “Gifting”. The third icon is the cancer awareness ribbon which people proudly wear to show their “solidarity towards the fight against cancer”.
When all these three icons are combined, it clearly conveys the message that MVR Cancer Centre and Research Institute envisions.
MVR CCRI Management Wisdom
C.N. VijayaKrishnan, chairman of MVR Cancer Centre, says that the cancer centre is set up under their corporate social responsibility exclusively for Malabar. With Advanced technology and awareness, cancer can be controlled.
Dr. Narayanankutty Warrier, medical director of the MVRCCRI says that among the 60,000 cancer patients per year in the state, only 20,000 can afford the treatment while the rest are forced to compromise due to financial burden.
Calicut City Service Cooperative Bank has been for long wishing to do something big as part of the corporate social responsibility and a cancer care unit exclusively for Malabar fulfils it, says the Management.
