Dr. Sajeeda, consultant radiologist at Vijaya Medical Centre, who participated in the run, said nearly 20% of women were suffering from breast cancer and underlined the need for preventive care by undertaking regular check-up.

Since 1993, 14 million Making Strides supporters have raised more than $870 million nationwide.
