MEDIA RELEASE 6:
An Interview with Pratika Lal, Founder and Chair of charity Treasure Chest Inc. April 8, 2016
You are a breast cancer survivor. How has breast cancer affected you?
Cancer has changed how I see life but I won’t let it define me. I have learnt to appreciate more and I firmly believe that I have twice survived cancer because God had another plan for me, and that was to keep going on the various things I have started and need to finish. Treasure Chest is one of those things I want to leave behind with a sense of achievement, and that we as a bunch of amazing women have started something to improve the lives of many women coming behind us.
