Breast cancer? Hmm…does it sound familiar? We are sure it does. India has witnessed a steep rise in the number of women being affected by breast cancer. In fact, one out of 22 women in the country develops the disease, and one out of two dies because of it.
The worst is lack of early diagnosis is leading India towards the epidemic. Women are hesitant to visit a doctor due to fear of chemotherapy, surgery…and death. Negative publicity regarding pain during mammogram is prevalent.
Basically, there is lack of motivation. While breast cancer can be diagnosed early thanks to various mobile apps and tools, one shouldn’t forget how important it is to stay positive and self-motivated – no matter what the situation is.
Today, we want you to take a moment to sit, relax and lift your spirits with words. We want you to fill your mind and heart with positive affirmations because well, life can change in a second – for the better or worst.
