The Hospital Auxiliary has again provided handbooks and guides for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients at The Breast Health Center. These books included the Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook, Breast Cancer Survivorship Handbook, and Sexuality After Cancer Treatment books. Also received were the Treatment Summary Quick Reference cards for patients to carry with them including diagnosis details, treatment dates and other pertinent information. This is a handy reference card for the patients to have with them at all subsequent appointments with their numerous healthcare providers. These handbooks and guides were in part funded by a donation received by the Auxiliary for their participation in the annual Lowcountry Rockin’ the Pink Breast Cancer Walk.
Refreshments continue to be provided for the monthly Breast Cancer Support Group meetings held at the Bluffton Medical Campus. In December each year, the Auxiliary arranges for Corner Perk to provide coffee at the monthly meeting where support group members decorate a pink Christmas tree in the lobby of the Bluffton Medical Campus Building.
