Meet Sarita, a 42 year old breast cancer survivor, who got confined to home post breast removal surgery

Living in Raghubir Nagar, Sarita (name changed) is a 42 year old woman whose world turned upside down when she got diagnosed with breast cancer. After going ahead with a long, emotionally and financially challenging treatment she lost all purpose in life. With immeasurable support from her loving family, she underwent mastectomy (breast removal surgery) but soon after, started having severe shoulder, back and neck pain due to the imbalance caused in her body. She started looking for cheaper alternatives to the expensive silicone based prosthetic bra but that did more harm than good to her. In one of our OPD sessions at AIIMS, Sarita was approached and was given two free prosthetic bras. She has now been using those for over 3 months now and is eternally grateful to us for introducing her to a low cost medically approved prosthesis. Her shoulder and back pain have reduced to a significant amount and she is now leading a regular life.
