• After Care

    Research has shown that support groups help reduce the three most significant stress associated with cancer: unwanted aloneness, loss of control, and loss of hope.

Small Group Meetings

Timely and appropriate supportive care is an essential requirement for all women receiving breast cancer treatment. Good supportive and psychosocial care leads to improved psychological wellbeing and recovery for women with breast cancer. Hakuna Matata is our theme focussing on restoring body and mind by learning about food and fasting, mindful living, yoga, pranayama, lifestyle integration, EFT, reflexology and other therapeutic techniques that are all shared in 6 hours over 2 days. 

Large Group Meetings

Chennai Breast Centre hosts large group meetings every month. These meetings can be called a lifeline to information, support and encouragement through good times and bad. Every month Dr. Selvi Radhakrishna / Dr. Asha Reddy or other Breast care Nurses at the centre and other external resource person provide educational presentations through their talks and healthy dialogues with the group. People who participate in these support group meetings report significant decrease in depression, increased zest for life, and a new attitude toward their illness.

Prosthesis and Chemo Caps 

We also have a group of volunteers who knit prosthesis for patients who have had their mastectomy. These are cotton external prosthesis that can be inserted into bra pockets and help to mask the physical deformity caused by a lack of a breast. This makes a psychological impact and helps patients bounce back into their social activities with lesser hesitancy and worry of stigma. We also provide them with Chemo caps and advise regarding wigs for hair loss during chemotherapy.
