Verma, who was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last year, has been very vocal about her cancer journey and treatment at Beth Israel.
Towards the end of her chemotherapy treatment, she launched non-profit program “Put A Cap On Cancer” which gives free cap wigs to cancer patients.
Beth Israel patients who received cap wigs from the foundation were also at the event and shared their emotional cancer experiences.
