The end of breast cancer treatment signals a new phase of your life and care. Many find they face new issues and concerns, perhaps feeling more alone, because in the eyes of their support system, they have completed treatment and are back to a new normal.
Regaining a sense of balance and normalcy afterward can be as challenging as the disease itself. The reality for a majority of patients is there are a number of short- and long-term physical, psychological and financial effects to cope with following medical treatment for breast cancer — what is often referred to as the “new normal.” Complicating things further, there are often minimal structures in place to ensure communication between a patient’s oncology and primary care health care team once treatment is completed.
Recognizing this need, Chennai Breast Cancer Research Foundation has launched its breast cancer survivorship program called SRADDHA (Sanskrit-commitment) A commitment to living.
A celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community.
