Care for Cancer
The Program is designed to provide a diversional therapy to help ease the process of recovery and rehabilitation by emotionally empowering the participants.
The anxiety and uncertainty of a Cancer diagnosis can create extreme disruption in the lives of patients under treatment, survivors of the disease, caregivers affecting their physical, psychological, social and financial environment. This disruption leads to feelings of distress which often remain unaddressed, and can over time lead to emotional outbursts, anger issues, anxiety, depression and slow recovery causing an increased burden on care facilities.
