Breast Cancer Support Groups
A breast cancer 'Support Group' or a 'Community' is formed by people who have been touched by breast cancer, be it themselves, or their family members or friends. A woman undergoing treatment of breast cancer (as also her caregivers), goes through a lot of emotional turmoil and in such situations, a support group plays an extremely important role. Seeing other women, who have completed their treatment and are fine now, gives an immense moral boost to those undergoing treatment, apart from the guidance and tips during the treatment phase.
Support groups could be online or offline. The Pink Initiative's Online Community for Indian breast cancer patients, started in January 2013, is presently the only Online support system in India, catering to indian breast cancer patients. When it comes to offline groups, there are many such groups in practically every city of India and it is our endeavour to enlist as many of them here as possible.
