Chandigarh Breast Cancer Trust was launched on 6th October 2007 with the following objectives:-
1. To provide financial assistance to the poor patients byt providing medicine,
cost of surgery etc.;
2. To provide emotional security, physical presence during chemotherapy;
3. To provide help for research and development in the field of breast cancer to
mitigate the suffering of the patients;
Besides providing medical facilities for poor patients, the Trust has formed an inner group of survivors who visit the P.G.I on the days of chemotherapy and provide emotional and moral support as the patients are able to relate better with the survivors. The Trust is also conducting awareness Camps at schools/colleges.
