January 24, 2015, First meeting to discuss about Cancer Awareness Campaign which was to take place at Cardiac Care Center on February 12, 2015. Eksangh was not born yet, but the involvement of local NGO women had started by being a big part of Cancer Campaign, organized by Jayshri Rami.

On February 12, 2015, sitting in the audience, watching an act on ‘Beti Bachavo’ written and directed by Jimeshbhai , a thought came to mind of organizing a ‘street play’ on “Breast Cancer Awareness” The very next day I met with Jimeshbhai and asked if he was willing to work on creating a street play on Breast Cancer Awareness? Next thing I know, Jimeshbhai wrote up a skit in two weeks. I worked with Parulben on the doctors role as this is the part where the cancer awareness comes in. I wanted to make sure that correct information was shared with the audience about cancer. Things like risk factors, promoting monthly Breast Self Exam, going to a doctor for a Clinical Breast Exam and annually going for Mammograms. It’s a great beginning and a fantastic addition to the Breast Cancer Awareness project in Gujarat.
