November is also awareness month everybody :)

Even though October's status has been updated to being the past month, our bodies have moved on to November and our minds are open to information and we hope to create more and more awareness throughout the year.

As long as we live, we must take care of our body and must strive for it to function well. A healthy body is a happy body!

Breast Cancer awareness around the world has been very good and responsive in the month of October and that is definitely a good sign. I had so much on my hand in October and I am aiming at having more and more to do in November 2011. I know that I am giving away stuff for auction so that the money generated can help the uninsured and underinsured popultaion. I am also speaking at an African American Health Fair this month. I am so happy to see that there has been a lot of activity in India this past month! I feel proud that young doctors are taking resposibility for a better and healthier India.

On this happy note, let me leave you with a question that you need to ask your mother, wife or friends.... when did they last discuss their Breast Health with a doctor?

Also, Early Detection is your best protection!!!

Keep healthy,

Shikha :)

    Hope this would be useful for others.
