Tea project.

Lets Serve a Cup of Tea to a Cancer Patient…By Dr.Iresh Jayaweera

An Average of two hundred cancer patients who are on regular followup come to oncology and onco- surgery clinic each working day.

Some of these patients come from far away places like Embilipitya and leave homes around 2 am. And sad to say some of them  cant afford their bus fair even.

CCA Karapitiya Branch with the guidance from Dr.Upul Ekanayake & Dr.Samadhi Rajapakse started to give a cup of Milk Tea/Coffee(Nescafe) to those poor patients.

The cost of Milk packets for each Dhana/Clinic is estimated around Rs.3000.00, and for mile stones like birthdays any one can come and serve Tea.

So far there are 150 donors registered for their birthdays and we need to find donors for other 90 days as well.(Total of 5*4*12=240 days).

Even if you physically cant  participate on that day,our generous members will do the serving part for you.Also we invite all of you to come and participate in this highly meritorious activity by your own.

Being the most common cancer among females in Sri Lanka Breast Cancer has left thousands of Sri Lankan Woman in despair with everlasting cosmetic defects. Event the few lucky patients to survive with breast cancer end up with either partially or totally resected breasts that will leave a scar as well as an empty chest with huge emotional burden. A breast being an important part of female physique a traumatised or disfigured female chest has an enormous impact on the patient as well as people closely associating the victim.

Although these breasts are being taken out surgically as a life saving measure, to reconstruct a breast surgically is rather expensive as well as an impractical thing in cancer patients. Even with such possibility Silicone Breast Prosthetics and such Plastic surgery is way too expensive for Sri Lankan patients.

Taking these reasons in to consideration CCA started its Breast Prosthesis Bra campaign on the 19th June 2008. Since its initiation CCA has given 855 Braziers to deserving patients from Anuradhapura, Kandy and across the country.  One bra costs 250 SL Rupees to Cancer Care Association and we now have spent almost 215.000 Rupees on giving away these breast prosthetics.

With the commencement of this project Mrs. Anoma Wijesuriya Managing Directress of Anoma Opticians donated us with the first contribution of 50.000 Rupees. After that we have been keeping up with the service  on generous contributions made by various parties and individuals. Among many other kind donations CEB (Ceylon Electricity Board) staff contributes to this project every month.

The bra of hope
