Breast Health Programs

 

 

Biopsy Fund


Provides biopsy assistance for women under the age of 40 who have gone through our
program and have a suspicious abnormality. Funds are limited and provided for residents
of St. Joseph County. Must be pre-approved.
 

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 and a post
treatment fitness program at the YMCA, all at no cost to you! To see you you 
are eligible, call 574-314-5433 today!
