Community Programs for Breast Cancer Patients

Breast cancer is currently one of the most common types of cancer. Everyone has breast tissue, so anyone can be affected by it. Although it mainly affects women, more men are being diagnosed with the disease each year.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, there are many processes undertaken to help rid a person of the disease. Treatments and therapies, radiation and chemotherapy (when applied) and post-surgery follow-ups are necessary steps that follow the diagnosis. That’s why it’s really important for patients to engage in a community that will provide help and care throughout the recovery process.

This video features an interview with Sonima.com’s founder, Sonia Jones, as she talks with Yannette Tactuk, a clinical oncology social worker, about the several different ways medical workers can make themselves available both on- and off-site.
