Welcome to Breast Cancer India
Welcome to Breast Cancer India, your one stop site for all resource related to breast cancer in India. This site is managed by the NGO The Pink Initiative.
Cancer is a difficult journey, both for the one who is suffering as also their care givers. In our practice in India, we have noticed that this is all the more compounded by incorrect notions and incorrect ideas in the minds of people related to treatment of cancer. We firmly believe that having a correct knowledge of cancer and its treatment is half the war won already and helps those undergoing treatment and their care givers cope up with it better. Our endeavour is to provide right guidance and correct knowledge on everything related to BC.

OUR AIM, OUR COMMUNITY
What is our aim?
Breastcancerindia.net is supported by The Pink Initiative, a registered NGO, working towards awareness of BC in India
The biggest problem facing India in the face, is lack of awareness of breast cancer (BC). If we wish to reduce the numbero f people dying from BC, it is essential to detect this early, for which, being aware about the symptoms of BC will play a very important role.
Women undergoing treatment of BC pass through a lot of emotional turmoil as also their near and dear ones. With an aim of encouraging sharing problems and providing solutions, by BC patients themselves, we started the first online Indian community for BC in 2013.
