When 37-year-old Shikha Goel was diagnosed with breast cancer three months ago, life came to a grinding halt.

The Delhi-based founder of fashion label Ilk had to reorganise everything around her.

Her work, her friends and her future plans momentarily took a backseat.

The initial shock was too much to handle, but she picked herself up and decided to fight the disease with support from her family and friends.

She launched a social media initiative to encourage more women to routinely get screened for breast cancer. What followed was an urgent surgery and prolonged rounds of chemotherapy.
