Nargis Dutt Foundation held awareness event on World Cancer Day in Mumbai. Sonali Bendre took part in the programme. Speaking at the event on cancer she encouraged people to go for early detection if their families have cancer background. "Huge part of cancer is genetics. The more data you have on cancer, the more the doctors can help you. What in India we lack is data. Anyone who has cancer in their family, go and get yourself tested. Most important cancer is curable if detected early. Genetic testing is important," said Sonali Bendre.
