Providence Southwest Washington
The Cancer Care fund provides funding in support of comprehensive patient oncology needs, including patient education, complimentary cancer therapies, new equipment and patient support programs.
Cancer Care Close to Home
One in every two Americans will be touched by cancer in their lifetime. Many of us have a colleague, friend, neighbor or loved one who has faced this difficult disease. Funds support local programs and services including new technologies, patient education and cancer support services for patients currently fighting cancer. Services are received through Providence Regional Cancer System (Aberdeen, Centralia, Lacey, Shelton and Yelm).
In 2020, over $138,000 in funding was provided to enhance care by expanding mission driven programs and services in oncology. Our goal is to provide the highest quality, most comprehensive cancer care, counseling and support for our patients in our communities.
Advanced Care Planning (ACP)
At Providence, we support an individual’s right to choose the care they want. Advanced Care Planning encourages patients and families to talk about and document their care preferences in advance to ensure that the care they receive is aligned with their goals, values and priorities. Through foundation funding, ACP resources help you and your family have the conversation and document your wishes in writing.
Integrative Cancer Care
During cancer treatment, you can combine conventional medical treatments with holistic care to enhance your overall wellness and quality of life. Thanks to generous donors, services such as acupuncture, massage, naturopathic medicine and nutrition services are made possible at Providence.
