Today is Women’s day!Everyday, I celebrate the power of womanhood and marvel at the bottomless reservoir of strength and courage that the women I come across have. And I can only bow my head in reverence. She may look fragile but her indomitable spirit and her ability to take the unimaginable in her stride, can never cease to surprise you. What stuff is she really made of? Proud to be a part of this bold and beautiful brigade! Take good care of yourselves! This world needs more of you💖💖 #health#cancer#breast cancer surgeon# Max Hospital Patparganj

It is not rare for me to see patients presenting with locally advanced breast cancer or metastatic cancer. Many times, I would wonder why they came in late. Till a few years back, I would judge the educated ones more harshly and enquire in my mind what education had done for them. I stopped judging them a few years ago especially after scratching their tough exteriors a bit! Six years ago, this elderly lady, speaking in impeccable English almost stumbled into my office. She was pale and weak and her daughter informed me that she had a bleeding ulcer in her left breast. I examined her and found a 15 cm large bleeding, ulcerated mass in her left breast. Her blood tests showed she was awfully low on Hemoglobin. I quickly arranged for a biopsy and also had a PET CT done, almost certain, that her disease would have spread. Thankfully, I was proved wrong. She was given blood transfusions and chemotherapy was started. She was an epitome of courage and went through her chemotherapy, surgery and radiation with a quiet resilience. During the course of her treatment, I asked her why she had presented so late. What she said shook me!She said she had a paralysed husband to look after and she had been doing that for the past 4 years. She knew about the lump and that it was growing. It is just that her husband’s need was greater. That is when the judging stopped. We may boast of a secure social fabric but many times we see these lone wagers, fighting their own battles. Their health becomes secondary. Life is not easy for many. Bless her!She is well. Her dear husband passed away 3 years ago and she runs an NGO to promote forgotten skills among women in rural Haryana. I am truly proud to have known her!

Today, I got a call from one of my erstwhile patients. I treated her for breast cancer about 10 years ago. She had two young children at that time, a daughter aged 10 and a son aged 7. She would come on follow up, regularly. However, five years down the line, her husband got transferred to Guwahati.On her last visit to me, she was tearful. She hugged me and said, ‘Doc, I have one wish. I want my daughter to become a Doctor like you! And at that moment, I choked. No words were spoken and she quietly left my room. I thought I had received the best compliment ever. Returning to the excited voice over the phone. It was her. She told me how she had misplaced my number and how she had found my number through a friend’s friend, who I had treated. I asked her if she was ok and she said she never felt better. I was relieved.She had called me to just tell me that her dream was on its way to being realised.Her daughter was studying medicine and wanted to pursue surgical oncology as her career. I mumbled my congratulations and did not realise that tears were running down my cheeks as I put the phone down. Noble profession, indeed! #Health#Doctor#BreastCancer#Surgeon#Max Hospital#Patparganj
Bliss Foundation launches its unique ‘Touch Feel and Do’ Workshop to create breast and cervical cancer awareness!

All things, big and small, begin with an idea.
Touch Feel and Do workshop was conceived as we sat across a table.
It started with the questions
Are we doing enough? Are we doing right? Do the ladies we talk to understand what we are trying to tell them? Do they know what to look for? What should alert them?
And then the realisation dawned, that when we talked to them, they absorbed a few things here and there. They surely could not piece it together.
We had do something different to create a lasting impression....while the thoughts flew back and forth, the idea of a dummy with all possible presentations of breast cancer came up. The dummy was acquired by the tireless efforts of Reva and what started as a thought began to take shape.We wanted the ladies to touch the dummy breasts, to feel what cancer may be like and to do it on their own selves.
A pre lecture questionnaire followed by the lecture, a post lecture questionnaire and then a Touch Feel demo completed the workshop
The results quite amazing... from ignorance to empowerment in a matter of an hour and a half- the duration of the workshop. We are on a roll after the stupendous success of yesterday’s program where the Touch Feel and Do Workshop was formally launched with the blessings of BK Sister Shivani. We have done 10 and with more doctors and volunteers joining us, we hope to complete 30 this year. With the kind of love and support we are receiving, there is no stopping us now!
A big hug to the Crusaders who made this happen- Nidhi Agarwal, Reva Kumar, Meenu Madan, Dr Swasti, Dr Neerja Gupta, Dr Mallika Agarwal, Dr Smriti Neha, Ms Payal, Vijayaji, Ruby, Saloni, Anju, Kalpana, Shivani, Smita, and the young Turks Navya, Ansh and all the volunteers .....you have every reason to be proud of yourself!💖
Jaadoo ki jhappi for the unsung heroes who work selflessly for the cause- Karuna, Esther, Deepta, Rituparna, Archanaji and Mrs Solanki. You help us dream bigger!💖
A big thank you to all those who attended the program and believed in us!
