I am a software professional working in Bangalore, having 16 years of experience, currently on a career break.
I have a wonderful family with 2 daughters aged 11 and 4.
I have a first-hand experience of how Cancer affects our lives, my mother was detected with 3rd stage Breast Cancer in 2009 .She had undergone a Knee replacement surgery and just after the surgery was completed ,came to know about her cancer.
She underwent a mastectomy on the next day, followed by Radiation ,6 sessions of Chemotherapy and 8 years of Femara.
I truly believe Breast Cancer Patients/Survivors stand a chance to fight back if detected early. This is possible only when there is more awareness about it .
BCH is a wonderful initiative, I hope it touches as many lives as possible.
I am glad to be a part of it.
