An ex Miss India finalist, Sangeeta Bahl has conquered great fights in all possible terms. Whether it’s about running a successful business or mountaineering, she has done it phenomenally. Her terrific attempt to summit the Mt. Everest for the first time in April-May 2017 was a grand success.

Now, she is all set to climb the Mount Everest for the second time, but this time, with an aim to spread the message of early breast cancer detection at the end of this month.

Sangeeta Sindhi Bahl, an MBA from University of Bradford UK, is an amazing inspiration. She is a motivational speaker, an acclaimed international Image Consultant from AICI and a passionate mountaineer. Sangeeta decided to support the cause of Women Cancer Initiative (WCI) by Tata Memorial Hospital and will carry its banner to Mount Everest as a symbol of our collective fight against cancer. “Women can and women will!” exclaimed Sangeeta Bahl.

The WCI is an initiative by Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) which felicitated Sangeeta Bahl for her efforts and also celebrated the occasion with a fashion show where cancer survivors walked the ramp.

“Age is not a barrier to start anything,” added Bahl. Under her leadership WCI has undertaken various programs to spread cancer awareness, educate patients and doctors, support cutting edge research and most importantly provide financial support for underprivileged women with cancer.

Devieka Bhojwani, founder and Vice-President of WCI-TMH, said, “We believe that no woman should die of cancer because she could not access care. We also wish to spread knowledge and awareness about cancer among members of general public to facilitate the early detection of cancer. As part of these initiatives, WCI is pleased to announce its partnership with the acclaimed mountaineer, Sangeeta Bahl, who has conquered many peaks and will climb the pinnacle of Mount Everest in the near future. Bahl symbolises the courage and strength of women in the face of adversity, which is in harmony with the philosophy of WCI, which has been supporting and reinforcing the resolve of women to fight cancer from the past 15 years.”
