Ahmedabad, March 14, 2024 – HCG Cancer Centre, Ahmedabad, in collaboration with Sports Club, announced the ‘Courageous Hearts’ initiative, driven by a collective commitment to raising awareness about ovarian cancer, empowering survivors, and fostering preventive healthcare measures for the well-being of women.

As a part of the event ovarian cancer survivors, walked the ramp and carried placards to raise awareness on cancer. Around 200 survivors participated in the walk, symbolizing strength, and resilience. A vibrant flea market was also set up at the Ahmedabad Sports Club. The flea market not only offered attendees the opportunity to support the cause through purchases but also served as a community-driven effort towards a worthy cause. The funds collected from the flea market will be utilized for vaccination of young orphan girls against cervical cancer which will be conducted on 12th May 2024. This will provide the much-needed protection to the young girls from the risks of cervical cancer.

Our goal was to empower women with knowledge about symptoms and early detection methods. The event not only allowed ovarian cancer survivors to share their inspiring stories of resilience but also raised funds through a flea market. These funds will provide cervical cancer vaccinations for young orphan girls in the region, demonstrating our dedication to preventive healthcare.

The event also provided a platform for ovarian cancer survivors to share their stories of resilience and inspire others.
