What is there in this section?
In the Resources section, we aim to focus on the following:
Indian Breast Cancer Support Groups: Support groups play a very important role in helping a patient fight cancer, as also give an opportunity to learn from others about the same. Here, we attempt to list all support groups on cancer in India.
Organizations: There are various organizations devoted to cancer patients, and carrying out various activities related to cancer patients, as also helping the needy get help. We have listed them on this page.
Initiatives: A worthy mention of people or groups, trying to help cancer patients in their own way and make a difference.
Survivor stories: Cancer is attached with a lot of stigma in the Indian society. The utterance of the very word 'cancer' brings dread, and fear. Also, those who have been detected with this disease and the relatives are so much under stress, they tend to take anything told by any relative or friend at face value, do not even cross check, do not think rationally and many end with improper treatment. Besides, EVERY SINGLE PATIENT I have treated is initially so much afraid of chemotherapy, due to hearsay, that many are not even willing to undergo the same. Its only after proper counselling, they come around, and after I introduce them to my other patients, who have undergone the same, that they realize, that all that is needed is the will and courage to fight it! The rest falls into place on it's own. Hence, we wish to put up as many authentic survivor stories as possible, to let others read, how these people fought against the disease and are all fine now.
Books related to cancer: There are many good books available, which are related to cancer, may it be a survivor story, or history of cancer, etc. We aim to review some of the best selling books related to cancer.
Other sites: There are multitude of excellent sites on breast cancer giving all possible information. We have listed some of the sites here.
PDF and other downloads: Text and other material related to breast cnacer, which can be downloaded and read at leisure.
If you know any support group or any organization or some useful site which is not listed here, and you feel MUST be listed here, please do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org After ensuring the authenticity, we will list it here. This page has a lot of place for suggestions and they are most welcome.
