Hi my name is Rohit, I am from India In the past few months I came across more than 3 cases in a month which resulted in death of close friends and the only reason was that they could not afford the medical expenses for the treatment.
We would like to raise funds to provide medical health care to majority of women suffering in rural areas who cannot afford the expensive treatment and early detection and it should begin from providing awareness in coordination with team from India Against Cancer.
Its a ticking time tomb for those who do not have enough time and finances to afford the treatment as the average price for the Breast Cancer Surgery / Treatment from the 15 best corporate hospitals and 10 Top Oncosurgeons of India is minimum $ 4000.
We are not only aiming to raise maximum funds to help the women who cannot afford but we are also trying to create World Record for 1 million people wearing the T shirt with our slogan "FIGHT LIKE A GIRL" and we would like to do it on OCTOBER MONTH 2019 as its a breast cancer awareness month which will only send a message across the world that we are united towards this cause as this will be showcased at the end of the funding campaign.
we are aiming for $1 million dollars thats $50 dollar an average to raise the funds and the same will be utilized for seminars, hospital medical bills, breast cancer awareness etc.
we would require every small help we could get to achieve this target which lot of people regarded as impossible.
Cancer Statistics in India: situation is very grave.
For every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one woman dies of it in India because the average cost of medical expenses is $4000 where a monthly income of average Indian living in rural areas is $50.00 a month.
