Would love to connect. I'm from South India. Are there any good Indian support groups out there??

Hi Cark. On the HealthUnlocked website, there is the Breast Cancer India discussions group. It has lots of participation by breast cancer patients in the Indus region, and I believe there is at least one Doctor participating on there too.

We are glad to have you here at BCO, too.


My latest (Stage IVB) diagnosis is almost certainly of another distant primary type. To the best of my information and belief, I am still apparently what we call NED as to breast cancer, doubtless thanks to Letrozole.

Cark, I'm not from India, but my oncologist is. She's absolutely fabulous. Her wisdom saved my life, and her matter-of-fact compassion blessed me. Salute to your country. Gentle hugs. SB
