No woman should ever have to wonder if she has breast cancer.
No woman should ever have to go through it alone.
On average 3-4 women from our community received mammograms through the Angel Fund at Ministry Saint Michael’s Foundation last year. These women may not otherwise have had a mammogram.
Imagine how many of those women wouldn’t have known they had breast cancer.
Imagine how many lives were SAVED or prolonged.
There are many difficult decisions to make once a woman receives this news. What do I tell my family? What if I lose my hair? What kind of treatment? What kind of surgery? Lumpectomy? Mastectomy?
“When I was going through my breast cancer, I spent a lot of time on the internet in the middle of the night – trying to sort out the fact from fiction,” said Laurel Hoeth, a breast cancer survivor of Saint Michael’s Hospital.
Our breast care navigators Amanda and Kerie are there to help every step of the way. They provide comforting, personalized care to our breast care patients and their families in the Ministry Breast Care Center.
Sometimes it’s all about helping others be comfortable. Project Embrace gives each cancer patient a special fleece blanket providing ease and warmth to their sensitive skin.
Whether you’re providing mammograms to those in need or giving them step by step help coping or providing comforting blankets there are many ways you can make a BIG impact in someone’s life.
Make a big impact TODAY. Give now and support women in our community.
