If a patient is diagnosed with breast cancer, our Empower Her® sponsorship program provides guidance through the medical maze. Empower Her includes Patient Navigators who are by the patient’s side when the diagnosis is shared and offer one-on-one advocacy and mentoring support through the entire process of diagnosis, to physician referral, to treatment. Patient navigation services include assistance with paperwork, translation, education, prosthesis, and access to any resource individuals may need to expedite healing and recovery.
