"Cancer support groups are a meeting for people with cancer and anyone touched by the disease including the family. Even though most of the people receive support from friends and family, the number one reason they join a support group is to be with others who have similar cancer experiences. Research shows that joining a support group improves both quality of life and survival. As a cancer surgeon, I have always found a need for a support group for many of my patients. I have always felt that they would do better when supported by such groups. There are many patients who have helped each other in the process of treatment and healing. Often many practical problems are solved by these conversations. Patients have helped each other in coping with the side effects of treatment. I have been associated with CTH for a long time now. I feel a rejuvenated group would be a great asset to society."- Dr Sandeep Nayak
