Project Garima is a crucial constituent of Win Over Cancer’s supportive efforts. It was started in 2016 by our co-founder, Mrs Kavita Gupta, who developed a low-cost prosthetic bra and started free distribution to underserved breast cancer patients across India.
The Dignity kit contains re-usable and washable, breast prosthesis (patent filed) and cancer bras.
The kit is made using special fabric technology and has been approved by apex cancer intitutes in India.
Our counsellors reach breast cancer survivors via hospitals across India.
Breast cancer survivors receive dignity kits containing prosthesis and pocket bra at hospital or their home. This is followed by peer counselling, cancer community and regular workshops.
Under-served women from rural Haryana are employed in manufacturing breast prosthesis and pocket bras.
Workshops and peer-support meetings are organized throughout the year, impacting breast cancer warriors.

"After losing my breast to cancer, I lost all my confidence. I did not know how to even step out of my house like this...but after I received the breast prosthesis for Win Over Cancer, it was like a second life I got after cancer. Now, just like before, I feel like a woman again and am able to empower other women by teaching them to drive scooty".
" I felt disgusted at myself when I looked in the mirror after surgery, my confidence was at an all-time low and I felt that I could no longer interact with people normally". Win Over Cancer was able to provide Sunita with its breast prosthesis which helped her a lot through her journey.
“It was an emotionally turbulent period in our lives," recalls Manohar, whose sister, Deepak fought cancer.
"Deepak’s chemotherapy began but we were soon out of money” Manohar and Deepak belong to a family of labourers and their father had been jobless because of excessive rain in Bihar.
