Rehabilitation support - SAATHI KIT
Most of the breast cancer patients have to undergo surgery and many patients loose one breast or in some cases both as a part of treatment. The news of cancer diagnosis is devastating in itself and then to live with a distorted body shape is a life-long adjustment. The treatment also leads to hair loss which unfortunately makes the cancer journey even more painful.We distribute free of cost SAATHI Kits to breast cancer patients from lower income group referred directly to us by hospitals/doctors.
SAATHI Kit is an attempt to make this adjustment easier, and to try to bring a smile on the beautiful faces under-going breast cancer treatment.
We are working with All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Center, Dharamshilla Naryayna Superspeciality Hospital and Max Superspeciality Hospital (Shalimar Bagh) for distribution of kits.
The kit has 4 items:
1. Weighted prosthesis (artificial breast)
2. Mastectomy bra – 2 (special bra with a pocket to keep the prosthesis)
3. Head scarf
4. Earrings (to make them feel special)
