Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Camps

Marking International Women's Day, the Foundation sponsored several Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening & Awareness Camps organized by the Tata Memorial Hospital's Department of Preventive Oncology.
These camps were held across the city of Mumbai, i.e. in the lower socio-economic & backward areas. The health camps were conducted by a team of dedicated and hardworking doctors under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Gauravi Mishra of the Tata Memorial Hospital.
