PATNA: Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala, who survived cancer, will promote a mobile app to create preventive awareness and help people battling the disease.
“I am going to promote an app to help people living with cancer and for others about preventive measures in advance,” Koirala said at a press conference here Jan. 14.
“I am launching this app to provide help to people to fight and survive cancer with the right information,” said Koirala, who is a survivor of ovarian cancer.
