Lady Ganga: Nilza's story

When Michele, a 45 year old Mother of three was diagnosed with late-stage cervical cancer, she took this as a call-to-action. She decided that she would travel to India to paddle board over 700 miles down the River Ganga, breaking a World Record and spreading awareness about this disease that was going to kill her. This is how she became known as Lady Ganga. Three years after her death, high in the Himalayas, a woman's life would be saved thanks to Lady Ganga and a world wide movement to eliminative cervical cancer was launched.
