Pallium India is honoured to partner with American Cancer Society (ACS) in disseminating an excellent resource on cancer “prevention to palliation with an additional focus on their caregivers”.

The material, created by an expert ACS team of medical editors from India and the US under the guidance of a National Advisory Board (India), falls into two categories:

  • KEEP YOURSELF HEALTHY
    A series of documents about healthy behaviours and prevention & early detection for breast, cervix, and oral cancers and
  • IF YOU HAVE CANCER
    Documents addressing common issues such as side affects, pain, lab tests, etc. that patients and their caregivers are concerned about when undergoing cancer treatment.

Access these precious documents FREE from our new ‘Your Health’ page…

The PDF files are available in English, Hindi and Gujarati. Please share them with your colleagues, friends and family.

If you have taken a good look at the WHO’s definition of palliative care, you would recollect that it includes “prevention of suffering”.

Why should we wait till a cancer has progressed to the incurable stage and then only provide tender loving care? Let us do what we can to prevent suffering.
