Program “We are here for you” in Sjenica

The counseling center “Jefimija”, through the program of increasing the availability of support for women suffering from breast cancer “We are here for you”, has finally started working in Sjenica as well.

The program includes meetings with women from the municipality of Sjenica with a diagnosis of breast cancer and support people, and through health, psychological, informational and experiential support workshops we get to know the difficulties they encounter during the treatment process and provide all support and concrete help to overcome these difficulties.

A very important segment is the discussion of essential issues such as lack of psychological support (and in health care facilities), inability of family members to provide such support, or even lack of support due to prejudices and stereotypes that accompany this type of disease, frequent lack of motivation for treatment. great geographical and traffic “distance” from treatment centers, ignorance of legal facilities and many other challenges.
