The Times of India - Pune – Goa Rally for Breast Cancer

It was an initiative towards creating awareness of breast cancer for women. Couple of girls driving cars came to Prashanti and we provided finger prints of patients to decorate some of the cars signifying hope, prevention, early detection & cure. We also provided pamphlets on signs, symptoms and self breast examination, along the route from Pune to Goa.
