Motivational wall art to sensitise people on Rheumatoid Arthritis

Motivational wall art to sensitise people on Rheumatoid Arthritis

For 53-year-old Seema Sood, life had come to a standstill after an attack of Rheumatoid Arthritis rendered her bedridden for many years. Fortis Hospital Mohali management offered her free of cost treatment and Dr Anil Abrol, Consultant, Department of Rheumatology treated her. 

Fortis Hospital Mohali, was able to make a correct diagnosis of her medical condition, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and treated her for the same. Following extensive treatment, Seema made a swift recovery and her health began to improve. This gave her a new zeal of life and heralded the start of her art journey. “I bought a pack of colours for Rs 10 and a drawing book. My first painting, The Red Rose, was appreciated by one and all. I now have more than 50 paintings to my credit,” said Seema with a joyful glint in her eyes. 

To highlight her unwavering hope and how she had emerged victorious in the face of adversity, Fortis Hospital Mohali has dedicated a wall on the facility premises for Seema to showcase her paintings. The aim is to sensitise people on Rheumatoid Arthritis, caregiving for patients with this disease and how debilitating diseases are not a deterrent for creativity. 

All praise for Seema’s determination, Abhijit Singh, Head-SBU, Fortis Hospital Mohali, said, “Seema’s paintings are a celebration of life. She has shown exemplary grit and determination despite undergoing a tough time. I encourage everybody to buy her paintings which will motivate her to do more in life.”
