It all started when this little 3-year-old girl came to know that her Grandma, whom she lovingly referred to as Nonnie, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. It was really trying time for Scout’s family, but when Nonnie’s hair started falling, even Scout became concerned, but her mother decided to give her lessons not in grief but in pride and the fighting spirit present in women, and hence this project was born.
The mother and daughter shortlisted the brave women over the centuries, and Scout was given a brief interlude on them, and they went on to select their iconic poses, and this process lasted for a year, and through her Grandmother’s diagnosis, treatment and mastectomy.
