CAN SUR VIVE 9

Date: 15 July, 2018

Can-Sur-Vive Trust, in collaboration with National Lotteries Board conducted the 9th ‘CAN – SUR – VIVE’ CSR program – a FREE Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Seminar/ Workshop on Sunday 15th July 2018 at the Lanka Hospitals 10th floor Auditorium. The workshop; held quarterly, aims to actively educate survivors of breast and gynaecological cancer on medical, physical, financial, spiritual and other related issues, pertaining directly to a cancer survivor’s well-being while empowering the survivors’ and family members’ confidence. A CSR effort aimed at reinstating the lost zeal while providing the survivor with emotional, psychological and societal wellbeing is the objective of the Can-Sur-Vive Trust of Sri Lanka. Breast cancer is the top cancer in women worldwide and is increasing particularly in developing countries like Sri Lanka where the majority of cases are diagnosed in late stages. Further, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among females in Sri Lanka. However, with early detection and treatment, all cancers can be cured and managed. The workshop as always was enriched with lectures by Consultants, including well-known Clinicians, Psychologist, Occupational therapists, Physiotherapists, Sociologists, while financial advisors, Clergymen discussed the main issues and challenges faced by the survivors. Although the “survivor” is often used to mean someone who has finished active treatment, ‘CAN – SUR – VIVE’ program intends to invite all newly diagnosed breast cancer patients who are presently on treatment too. Interested participants could register for the next free workshop by calling the Registration hotline 0713 161616.
