Cancer does not spare age,height, weight,poor, rich and any thing for that matter. One in every 8 persons is falling prey to cancer across the world. Although ,the risk of this cancer is more in one woman for every 22 women in our country, urban women ,obese women ,aged women, women begetting children in old age,mothers that do not breast feed , early puberty, not reaching menopausal stage even after 55 years of age,women taking hormonal treatment for a long time are more prone to cancer. The entire October month was considered as Breast cancer awareness month, since creating awareness is paramount as cancer can be fully cured if noticed in early stage.
Proportionate weight to height, healthy life style, consumption of more fruits and vegetables, exercise are some of the contributing factors that can keep any health related problem at a distance to a certain extent. But unfortunately cancer is waging a war despite clean habits and Spartan life style. There are many reputed personalities who have become victims of this deathly disease, despite serene life style.
But they have successfully won over this devilish cancer and become load stars to many victims. Not only do they exchange their turbulent experiences with others and turn them brave and bold, and besides, some pen their life’s ordeals and outcomes in book form also. Many women , who have surged ahead in many chosen fields facing many-a-catastrophe, becoming victorious over cancer sheer with their steely determination and mental stamina are indeed great lessons to all woman kind , especially to those who opine that cancer means total cessation of life and even devoid of taking any treatment.
They must emulate these victorious women of this dreadful disease. some illustrious and telling tales are worth noting. Gowthami is a famous thespian in tinsel field known to all of us. She has acted in many films of all languages of south India ,co- starring with great actors. Knowing that she she was afflicted with breast cancer at an young of 35 years, she was terribly perturbed and perplexed in the beginning , but faced the menace courageously with the help of Kamal.

Similar noteworthy anecdotes are Manciregan, the first lady of America, Australian Actress, Singer Kailiminag, Martina Nevrattulova, Bollywood Actress Mumtaj who have courageously and Surprisingly Come out of this malady. They are all unparalleled and unmatched live Examples.
Special and singular mention need to be made in respect of world famous Hollywood Actress Anjelinajoli. Since her mother died of breast cancer at the age of 56, knowing that she too had cancer found in BRACE 1, BRACE2 gene mutation tests she got her two breasts removed through Masectomy and let the entire world know that fact also.she further said that she had an idea of getting her two ovaries also removed , since 50% risk was there though ovaries were positive in gene mutation test.
Likewise people with good awareness of life, and its profound value , although perturbed in the beginning ,could be able to gather courage and face it boldly and prolong their life , shining in their chosen fields.
