The breath of life, a patient support group at MGM Cancer Institute.

At Swasam, we understand that dealing with cancer can be a challenging experience, not only for the patients but also for their caregivers, family and loved ones.

A supportive community where cancer patients and their loved ones could come together to share their feelings, experiences, find emotional support, simply listen and cope with the physical and emotional impact of cancer in their lives.

Swasam, which means “the breath of life,” is more than just a support group; it’s a safe haven where patients can come together. Our mission is to provide an environment where everyone feels heard, understood, and supported.

Our support group sessions are carefully planned to provide a meaningful experience for our patients. Every session includes an engaging activity, led by our trained facilitators, and volunteers, to bring out the inner child in our patients and help them have some light-hearted fun.

At Swasam, we believe that together we are stronger. We have seen our patients and caregivers evolve into a supportive community, where they look out for each other and share their journeys, helping each other defy cancer. Our patients have found solace in being part of this community, and many have made meaningful connections and friends.

We invite cancer patients and their caregivers to join our Swasam community, where they will find a supportive environment to share their experiences, learn from each other and find hope and strength to face their cancer journey.
