I am a Breast Cancer survivor!!

8 years have passed since Radhika first encountered breast cancer. While in hospital dealing with the experience of her own breast cancer treatment, she became acutely aware of the lack of awareness and disparities in cancer care. At this crucial moment in life, she started Penn Nalam - which means Women's Health in Tamil, a unit of Sri Dhanvantri trust with the support of her family members.

Two main objectives became clear to her :

  • To create awareness about breast cancer and bring world class treatment facility to women in India.
  • To provide an atmosphere that induces path breaking discovery to prevent, detect and cure breast cancer.

We are now embarking on an exciting new phase – To broaden our horizon with “CHENNAI BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION”, a one stop centre of excellence leading to a surge in prevention, early detection, treatment and after care for patients with breast cancer.
