Abstract: Breast cancer patients need to get palliative care to improve their quality of life. Family existence becomes an important role for breast cancer sufferers to fulfill physical and psychological health. Palliative care can be given to patients in the form of complementary and pharmacological therapy (FARKOM). FARKOM's community service program aims to improve family knowledge and abilities in the care of family members with breast cancer and support for taking medication control. The target of this community service activity is to involve five families with breast cancer members in the Bandarharjo Village.
