breast cancer awareness month Archives | Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath



Curtains were brought down on a month-long Breast Cancer Awareness campaign at Max Vaishali, in exemplary fashion. You would have been witness to several cookery shows but this event surely surpassed any that I have witnessed in the past. There were 9 teams with 4 participants each and they were all Champions, those who had been through the experience of breast cancer. Some, who were 10 years past the disease and others who were on treatment. Most of them prepared but one team came together just then.. Spirited, talented, creative with magic in their hands. πŸ‘©β€πŸ³πŸ‘©β€πŸ³πŸ‘©β€πŸ³πŸ‘©β€πŸ³πŸ‘©β€πŸ³Each team decorated it’s stall, collected items from the food counters to put together a drink, a starter, a salad and a dessert. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Then what happened was sheer magic. The judges Chief Dietician at Max Saket, Ritika Samaddar RD and Celebrity Chef Saby Gorai were at a loss. They had a tough time judging the competition. Thank you for being there.

They were all winners. They won the competition and many hearts. They suffused the space with such positivity that it will be some time before we are able to replicate this energy.πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

Thanks is due to the each participant… you made us all so proud, to Dr. Gaurav Aggarwal Jatin Verma and Vanshikha for giving wings to this dream event, to Sushila Kasana Jainer and Archana Mann for coaxing and cajoling the participants into believing that they would be creating memories for life and most of all, Head Dietician, Ms. Nidhi and her team at Max Vaishali, for curating all the ingredients, organizing them and executing the distribution flawlessly on the ground.


A super exciting Sunday morning with a blitz of pink, this time, with Women bikers and Breast Cancer Champions and Caregivers donning pink jackets and absorbing the calm of the morning interrupted by the powerful Vroom! Vroom! of their mean machines.

Flagged off by the 94 years old international athlete, Bhagwani Devi, along with Dr. Gaurav Aggarwal and Dr. Gopal Sharma. 100 bikers took to the street from Max Hospital Vaishali to Max Hospital Noida. As the pink stream vroomed ahead, it would have caught the attention of the bystanders- Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€

Empowered women- spreading the message of being breast aware. Doesn’t get better than this.🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸

A huge shout out to Nandani Verma, Dr. Leena Biswas, Khushboo, Mansi, Chandni and all the other lady bikers. You are inspiring!!

The pics say it all!

Thank you Jatin Verma, Vanshikha, Shahzad Hussain, Sushila Kasana Jainer


Physical activity is known to reduce the risk of breast cancer by almost 35-40% in a Norwegian study and outcomes are better after breast cancer in those women who exercise regularly!!

Happy to have been part of a run in the wee hours of 15th Oct 2022, where Max Hospital, Patparganj teamed up with DLF Mall Noida.

Dual purpose achieved as the Oncology Team at Max Institute of Cancer Care, Max Hospital Patparganj Dr. (Prof) Meenu Walia, Manoj Tayal, Dr. Satyam Taneja, Rashmi Shukla and I, Geeta Kadayaprath took stage with Breast Cancer champions to create breast cancer awareness and also flagged off a run, to underscore the importance of physical activity.

I did not mean to run but completed a walk and a run of 2.5 kms 😌with my colleague Dr. Manoj Tayal. Not much but every bit matters!!😜

And then it was work as usual starting at 8am!πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ

Thank you Dr. Kousar Shah, Mansi Jhamb and team for supporting this cause!!


By 2025, the annual incidence of breast cancer in our country is likely to get to 2.25 lacs/ year. The percentage of advanced breast cancer is still an alarming 60-70%.

We have to keep the conversations going, with women and men alike, to up the awareness level and detect breast cancers early. At this unique event, hosted by Max Hospital Vaishali, we had women leaders, CEOs, managers, Principals, and entrepreneurs participate in an engaging panel discussion. While they put forth their views, their insights were sharpened by our experts and the stories of courage by our breast cancer champions. I am sure they went back enlightened with a promise to spread the word within their sphere of influence.πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€

Neeti Palta regaled us with her humor and superb timing taking potshots at our male counterparts.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Absolutely on point!😁

Thank you Dr Gaurav Aggarwal and Dr. Harit Chaturvedi along with Jatin Verma, Vanshikha, Shahzad Hussain, Sushila Kasana Jainer and team for making this beautiful event happen.

Ladies, you are truly the Voice of Change as we celebrate the Spirit of Pink at Max Healthcare, this October month. What we do may be a drop in the ocean but I can see the ripples forming.

The Voice of Change will only get louder!
