The 'unmet needs' of cancer survivors include medical, psychological, social, spiritual, financial and informational needs. Follow up of a cancer survivor/warrior/fighter/ - to make them a winner we must provide,
Constant assurance by regular check-ups that the disease is under control, once a person has suffered from cancer.
Physical rehabilitation a very important but often neglected. The patient is unaware and the treating oncologist unconcerned about this aspect. So this is best done by an occupational therapist. Patient undergoes various bodily challenges surgery (one or more organs might have been removed), radiotherapy (causing fibrosis, stiffness, dryness, etc.), Chemotherapy (hair loss, mucositis, etc.). The patient needs physical rehabilitation on all these account.
In spite of everything going fine the patient remains in constant fear. Fear of death, fear of recurrence. A cancer survivor is in constant negative stress. A patient cannot win until unless his mind is taken care.
Spiritual rehabilitation is necessary to change the attitude of the patient.
Financial rehabilitation - One of the major areas of concern for stress is the financial loss that a family goes through during and also beyond the treatment. The financial loss can be because of - high cost of treatment, loss of job, constant travel, unfit for the job, regular absenteeism. Whatever be the cause, these patients require a regular financial help. Some may require a regular income source; some may like addition to their income.
