Shammima Patel

President
Breast Cancer Care Mauritius

Breast Cancer care was set up on 20th March 2014 upon my own experience and initiative. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. Thanks to timely medical help and the unflinching support of my near and dear ones, I have been able to overcome the illness and I am now in remission.
As a cancer survivor, I feel the need to share my experience and instill hope in those who are struggling with breast cancer and its aftermath.
