The incidence of breast cancer in India is 1 in every 22 women. With the alarming increase in breast cancer cases, it is estimated to cause more deaths among women than any other cancer by 2030. The hurdles in beating this particular cancer lie across all stages, starting from awareness to diagnosis, and from counseling to treatment in our country.
This year, all through October, the Breast Cancer Awareness month, Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) has undertaken an initiative, Short-cut October, to create widespread awareness regarding breast cancer. They believe that cancer is not the story of someone's life, but rather just a chapter. Many women fight this battle in silence, and we can make a difference in their lives by lending our support. People can show their support by either cutting their hair short and donating it to make wigs for those who have lost their own hair (and a crucial part of their identity) as a part of their cancer battle. They can also make donations towards building a corpus of funds to help patients who need it.
