Meanwhile at the Apollo Hospital, recovered heart patients, their loved ones and other individuals who wanted to promote awareness regarding heart health formed the shape of the ‘human heart’ . They also pledged to take care of this precious organ — both of their own and that of their loved ones.

With the theme ‘I love my heart’, a recovered patient promised to his family that he will take care of his heart while many others promised to lead a healthy and active
lifestyle to prevent heart diseases.
