Jakarta – When someone is convicted of detecting cancer, what is most needed is support from the social and family environment. With the support, cancer patients generally become more eager to undergo the treatment process until finally healed.
Recognizing this, Aryanthi Baramuli Putri, a breast cancer survivor, established the Cancer Information and Support Center (CISC) in 2003. “Cancer verdicts of course make them down, so they need support from their family and social environment so they can continue to fight against cancer. , “said Aryanthi Baramuli Putri at the” World Breast Cancer Day “event at Ciputra Mall Jakarta, recently.
CICS was founded by cancer survivors and parents whose children have had cancer. Their main activity, of course, provides moral, emotional, and social support for sufferers and families. “We are an example of people who have recovered from cancer. With our support, it is hoped that they will become more optimistic in order to heal, “said the woman born in Jakarta, October 18, 1964.
In addition to providing support, CISC as a cancer information center also seeks to increase public awareness and knowledge about the dangers of cancer. “This information is very important so that people are also more aware of the dangers of cancer and realize the importance of early detection,” he added.
In addition, CISC also provides three shelter houses near Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (RSCM) and Jakarta Dharmais Cancer Hospital. This halfway house can be used by cancer patients from areas referred to hospitals in Jakarta, especially from disadvantaged groups.
“Cancer treatment requires a long time. While in the regions, there are not many health facilities that can treat cancer. With the support of donors, the CISC also has three shelters for patients and counselors while undergoing therapy in Jakarta, “explained the member of the Regional Representative Council (DPD).
