Quotes from Chief Guests

" I am associated with Prashanti since its founding years. The work they are doing in breast cancer awareness and treatment is exemplary. The family support given to the breast cancer affected patients is as important as the anti-cancer medications. " " Every woman must look after her health as a priority. Please don’t ignore small signs and seek only expert opinion. If a cancer diagnosis presents, think positive. Breast Oncoplasty is a game changer and every patient should be aware of its benefits to the mind and the body. The stories of 23 women in the book should be a learning lesson for thousands of women about how to fight this challenge. " " My sister was affected with breast cancer. So, I know the mental turmoil that the affected patient and relatives undergo. Hence, do not ignore the medical advice given even in leaving a healthy life style. The work done by Dr. Koppiker and Prashanti in the area of breast cancer is commendable. "
