Synovial Sarcoma & Sachin Sarcoma Society

In 2012, Rashi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer for the first time. She underwent six cycles of chemotherapy as a part of her treatment. In 2016, She was again diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma in her right knee. Synovial Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer, and it happens to one in a million. She was emotionally traumatized. Her doctors and family supported her. This time she underwent surgery, five cycles of chemotherapy and radiation therapy as a part of the treatment.
For Rashi, the journey was challenging, but it made her more compassionate and humble. During her treatment, she decided to help people affected by Sarcoma as it is one of the rarest types of cancer. This made her start the Sachin Sarcoma Society in the memory of Mr. Sachin Yadav, a Sarcoma patient. His vision was to create this society for Sarcoma patients; unfortunately, he passed away. His wife, Jyothi Yadav, is also a part of society. All the members in the society are either patients or caregivers who support the Sarcoma affected families, patients and caregivers. Rashi says support groups are a necessity along with strong willpower.
