Cancer Support Groups

1) Sahayata



Dr Palepu Jagannath, chairman, department of surgical oncology, Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai, launched the vertical portal, indiacancer.org in June 2000. This nonprofit organization went on to include the Crusade Against Cancer Foundation.

The Web site contains information about cancer, how you can detect it, myths about cancer, treatment and care if you have the disease, cancer treatment for children and the medicines available. It also helps you search for specialists and cancer treatment centers. All patients who need financial help will be displayed as thumbnails; the donor can then choose the patient he wants to help. Once the patient receives the backing to take care of his/her treatment costs, his/her profile is taken off the list. You can also volunteer for the Crusade Against Cancer by investing your time and/or your money. The information is available at www.indiacancer.org.

Cancer used to be thought of as a virtual death sentence. Yet more and more people have learned to view this disease in a very different light. Many now recognize that living with cancer means learning to live with a chronic disease. It means learning how to manage symptoms and treatments while returning to as many of the normal activities of daily living as possible. It is important to have life go on as usual or at least as close to usual as you can make it.

The point is that a cancer diagnosis does not have to be absolutely devastating - although it can be if you let it. The key is to not feel as though you are a helpless victim of blind fate. Sometimes it may seem like a struggle, but you - just like many people before you - can learn to live with cancer.

Hello I’m the son of a Cancer patient. I’ve 2 boxes of Inj Iscador available for cancer treatment which I could not use for my father. Iscador is a recognized therapy for Cancer treatment to balance the side effects of Chemo and other standard treatment options. Researched and manufactured in Europe, the Injections are normally prescribed by most Cancer specialist Homeopaths and a few Oncologists. These injections have to be taken regularly over a period of 2-3 months for the desired effects. But one can consult a fellow Homeopath for the exact medications. In India, these inj have to be imported from Waleda and are available only at a few select places. The available medications are 2 boxes each of Iscador Q Series 0 and 1 @ Rs. 4500/- per box. Please read : http://www.iscador.com for more details. Also consult Dr. Kasad [Mumbai] or Dr. Navneet Rastogi (Delhi) for more info. Mail me : sniphadkar@gmail.com for more details
