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, locate support groups and other valuable resources to help you deal with the side
effects during treatment. Most of all, your patient advocate has been there herself and is
someone you can always count on during your journey to recovery.

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