EMOTIONAL SUPPORT TO CANCER PATIENTS & CAREGIVERS

The objective of this project is to provide emotional support to cancer patients and caregivers and equip them to tide over the difficult times in their fight against cancer.

Being diagnosed with cancer is usually accompanied by shock and disbelief, fear and uncertainty, anger, guilt, resentment, depression, denial or other difficulties. It can have a huge psychological and emotional impact on not just the patients, but also their families and caregivers.

Scope of the project is to provide counselling to cancer patients and caregivers across nine hospitals in Bengaluru. Hospitals where we counsel include – Apollo Hospital Bannerghatta, Apollo Hospital Seshadripuram, Aster CMI Hospital, ESI Rajaji Nagar, Manipal Hospital, Shankara Hospital, Sparsh Hospital, St Johns Medical College Hospital and Vydehi Hospital.
