In a significant move towards raising awareness about breast health and combating breast cancer, Smt.

The launch event, held in Mumbai on April 6, 2024, was part of the India Breast Meeting 2024, an initiative by Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital aimed at global collaboration in the fight against breast cancer.

The book, curated by Dr. Vijay Haribhakti, Chair of Onco Sciences at Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital, is a comprehensive guide designed to equip women with vital information about breast health, early detection, and optimal care. Ms. Isha Ambani Piramal, Director of Reliance Industries Limited, emphasized the importance of awareness and support in the journey against breast cancer.

“The fight against breast cancer is a journey of compassion and resilience, where every act of awareness and every gesture of support becomes a beacon of hope & healing for patients and their families. With the inaugural ‘India Breast Meeting 2024’, we have tried to bring together the knowledge and experience of experts from around the world. We hope this expands the scope and quality of care for breast cancer patients. My sincere appreciation and gratitude to the entire team at Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital for spearheading this initiative and constantly raising the bar for top quality patient care and support." said Smt. Isha Ambani Piramal, Director, Reliance Industries Limited.

Breast cancer has emerged as the leading human cancer and the most prevalent cancer amongst women worldwide and in India. In 2022, 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 670,000 died from the disease globally. This means that breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in women worldwide, accounting for 1 in 4 cancer cases. It's also the second most common cancer across all genders, and the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. The book aims to give precise information by medical experts and serve as the tool to help in prevention, early detection and optimal care in breast cancer which remains crucial to improved survival rate as well as quality of life.

To address the concerning rise on breast cancer, Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital also offers the “One Stop Breast Clinic” aimed at helping any woman with a possible or proven disease of the breast to get a comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment pathway within two hours.

The launch of "Being Breast-Aware" marks a significant step towards empowering women with knowledge and resources to take charge of their breast health. As the global community unites in the fight against breast cancer, initiatives like these serve as beacons of hope, guiding individuals towards a future free from the burden of this disease.
