Breast Health Programs

 

Patient Advocacy & Support Services 

You don't have to fight breast cancer alone. The Patient Advocacy Program provides you with assistance every step of the way, from  diagnosis through recovery. Your Patient advocate can answer questions, accompany you to doctor visits, join you during chemotherapy treatments, apply for grants on your behalf, locate support groups as well as other valuable resources to help you deal with the side effects from cancer treatment. Most of all, your patient advocate has been there herself and understands what you are going through.

You may also qualify for monthly gas and grocery cards while in treatment for breast cancer. Cards are distributed monthly while patients are in active treatment. To see if you are eligible, call 574-314-5433 today!
