Breast Cancer

Passionately Supporting http://www.coppafeel.org/

Met few volunteers today morning, handed me a pamphlet about breast cancer.So here’s me doing my bit and spreading the word.

Why I Feel for the Cause:

Had visited Adyar’s (Chennai,India) Cancer Hospital’s breast cancer wing at the age of 18 and the plight of people there and their pain has certainly left a mark somewhere deep in my heart.Just wish that our ignorance and hesitance should not become the cause of something deadly and painful.

Key Stats:

“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide, comprising 16% of all female cancers. It is estimated that 519 000 women died in 2004 due to breast cancer, and although breast cancer is thought to be a disease of the developed world, a majority (69%) of all breast cancer deaths occurs in developing countries (WHO Global Burden of Disease, 2004)” (source:WHO)

PS: Dont Panic , Just Be Active and Attentive to your Body to your Mind!!
