With an objective to create awareness among the employees regarding breast cancer and its symptoms, a Breast Cancer Awareness Talk was held at IIM Indore on May 03, 2018. Ms. Neeti Leekha, Founder & President, Yes to Life and a breast cancer survivor herself, shared her insightful journey during the talk. While noting that her NGO works towards spreading awareness regarding breast cancer and supporting the patients, she also shared her own experience as a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at an early age of 31. Thereafter, she took a roller coaster journey and today is a proud survivor. She motivated and encouraged the Institute female employees to take care of themselves and detect early symptoms of the disease. She also explained various ways to identify cancer at early stage, even at third and fourth stage. She concluded her talk giving various inputs on preventing occurrence and recurrence of breast cancer.
The talk was very insightful for the female employees.
