* “a” team race for the cure 2012

Reflection by Nadia R. Fletcher

How many excuses are there to take a trip to Central Park on a beautiful Sunday morning? The answer, endless! However, there is no reason more rewarding than taking a walk through the beautiful park with thousands of people supporting an amazing cause like the 2012 Susan G. Komen – Greater New York City Race for the Cure.


* domestic violence: breaking silence

I walked up the stairs of a two story brick building in Jackson Heights with an uncertainty as to what I may encounter inside. Today’s workshop was being held in a space provided by another organization called Chhaya CDC. I’ve been volunteering Adhunika Foundation for about three years now. Adhunika’s main focus has been to promote technology usage for Bangladeshi women worldwide in the hopes of bringing about a positive social change to their lives.


* together we conquer

Launching of Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign at Sajida Hospital, Keraniganj, Bangladesh, October 22, 2011

I was a bit emotional when the date for launching of the Breast Cancer Awareness event was fixed on October 22, as it marked my sister’s 4th death anniversary. In 2007, on this day my sister Farhana Ahmed took her last breath peacefully, surrounded by all her family members, she was only 41 years old.


* transforming communities from within

Which of the following statements are true?:
1. One in every three women in the world has experienced sexual, physical, emotional or other abuse in her lifetime
2. Domestic violence is primarily a crime against women. In 2003 in the United States, women accounted for 85% of the victims of intimate partner violence and men accounted for approximately 15%


* story of sajeda

I agreed to write about my experience with cancer for Adhunika’s blog because I wanted to do the right thing. Then I had serious second thoughts. I feel like mine is not a story to tell. It was not much of a ‘battle’. My experience has been nowhere near as painful or as heart-wrenching as that of others.


* story of lina

I am having Chemotherapy again. It recurred from my right breast. It would be incorrect to call it ‘breast’, it would probably be more appropriate to call it chest as my right breast was mastectomized on 3 October, 2009.


* breast cancer: girls, beware of the silent killer!

Dhaka, 2011: Cancer has turned out to be the number one killer of women in childbearing age in Bangladesh. According to Bangladesh Maternal Mortality Survey 2010, which was not aimed at estimating cancer deaths, got the shocking results while looking for causes of death of women in childbearing age.

* story of shegufta

I had my appointment with Dr. Hong at 4 .00 p.m Singapore time on 27th July, 2010 in Mount Elizabeth Hospital. I didn’t intend to go to Singapore leaving my daughters back in Bangladesh for a ‘simple’ reason but Saad, my husband, was very adamant to take me there. Saad had been very worried, tensed and nervous for last couple of days.
