New challenges and initiatives to save breast cancer patients’ lives
The ongoing research in breast cancer will not only mean a healthy future for patients who are able to survive and thrive but will also help to change the way we treat patients and this acts as a gift for a healthier future.
That new found hope is due to a group of doctors working on research projects developing new innovative techniques so that women everywhere will be able to survive a disease and retain their femininity by not having to undergo radical surgery to remove the breast.
Because BNH Hospital recognizes and values women and appreciates the sensitive issues surrounding Breast Cancer and their wider implications both physically and psychologically, this pioneering hospital are focused on providing specialist medical teams who are able to deliver the best available treatment tailored specifically to a woman’s needs. To this end, BNH Hospital has been actively working with The Queen Sirikit Center for Breast Cancer, Chulalongkorn University led by Dr. Kris Chatamara who is the brainchild behind current pioneering research and fund raising initiatives to drive the research forward towards its goals and ultimate success.
BNH Hospital has selected a total of 7 research projects which will provide new hope for breast cancer patients and future treatments.
In the past the standard of treatment was to surgically remove the tumour with the entire breast, more often than not unnecessarily. Additionally, chemotherapy and radiation though aimed at attacking cancer cells will also kill the good cells as well which results in undesirable side effects such as hair loss and exhaustion. It is because breast cancer is so difficult to treat successfully as well as minimizing pain and distress for the woman, that more effective and long lasting treatment is required. This can only be done with innovative research.
This is why BNH Hospital has selected 7 research projects and services that will create 7 Miracles for women everywhere in 2012 and beyond.
