Now it is a Story

This is Marufa from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer on 5 years back when I was 36 Years and I have a lovely family of 2 daughters and husband. We was in shock. It took us a couple days to decide there was one way I wanted to go about this fight. Simple mastectomy with Axillary Clearance (Rt) was done. After that 6 rounds of chemotherapy and 28 rounds of Radiotherapy done successfully in same year. By the grace of omnipotent Allah, I’m well now. From 2012 I get involved for sharing my practical experience that I learned during my treatment period with the breast cancer affected women and try to get the courage them. From last year I stated my home based handicrafts business again which was stopped due to treatment and its post effect. I also started to educated the women surrounding me about self-examination of breasts tumor surround. This year my next target to educate the women in slum area (where mostly Illiterate, Poorly educated people are lives) and about self-examination of breasts tumor which is the 1st step of early detection of breast cancer. I collected some video on self-examination of breasts tumor in early stage from YouTube. Tumor detection in early stage is very important and it will help to treatment effectively.
