Cancer is a killer that has now penetrated almost every household. Having lost my grandfather (throat cancer) and father-in-law(bladder cancer) to this disease and having seen my mother-in-law(pancreatic cancer), an aunt (breast cancer) and couple of kids of our very close friends (both ALS), put up their bravest fight against this killer, I realized that I cannot be feeling hapless about the situation, rather should do something about it. Creating awareness about this killer is one way to achieve that. I would be glad to be a part of BCH and contribute in whatever little way I can by spreading awareness on breast health and its issues therewith.
