Fortis La Femme is organizing Motarde, a women’s only bike rally on Sunday, December 4, 2016 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. As Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in most parts of the cities in India, and 2nd most common in the rural areas, Fortis La Femme has run a 2 month long special campaign, across Delhi & Bengaluru, wherein women were encouraged to learn about breast self-exam and go for mammography and breast checks by a clinician.
In addition to this, it has offered free mammography for 100 under privileged women in association with the Rotary Club of India. The aim is obviously to drive awareness, since on early detection, breast cancer is completely treatable.
This Sunday it is organizing a motorade in Delhi and asking the women to set the roar high. Fortis La Femme will also be honouring Cancer Survivors at the closing ceremony, wherein the survivors will also shared their experiences and highlight the importance of early detection.
