The Pink Ribbon Luncheon raises funds to provide not only Pink Ribbon Comfort Bags, Pink Pony Mammograms and CancerFITT
, but also provides the opportunity for staff training and family education materials.
The Pink Ribbon Comfort Bag
is a gift bag designed to bring comfort and hope to women and men newly diagnosed with cancer. Distributed by the Hayworth Cancer Center team, the Pink Ribbon Comfort Bags are designed to bring comfort as patients traverse through their cancer journey - from diagnosis to treatment.
Pink Ribbon Comfort Bag items:
- A fleece blanket to be used to warm patients as they receive their chemotherapy treatments
- A Pink Ribbon food journal to keep track of specialized diets and nutritional requirements
- An embroidered satin pillowcase for comfort
- Personal care and hygiene products
- A thermometer to keep track of mandatory temperature readings throughout treatment
The Pink Pony Mammogram Program
provides financial support for low-income, uninsured women to receive funded mammograms and other breast health services. Our community, like many others, is in desperate need of health care services for those who cannot afford to pay. In 2015, over $10,300 was given to provide mammograms to uninsured women in our community from the Pink Pony Mammogram Fund.
is an exercise program with evidence-based exercise intervention for cancer survivors to enhance quality of life, reduce recurrence and other diseases, manage and reduce cancer related fatigue and extend survival. This free 12 week program provides cancer survivors with an individualized exercise plan and weekly educational topics.
