The Springfield Regional Imaging and Cancer Centers have developed a robust mobile mammography program to bring breast cancer screenings to the communities and neighborhoods where we live. Through research and support from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Columbus Affiliate, we have been able to expand this effort. With additional assistance, we will be able to advance the effort to serve more women than ever before.
Community Mercy Hospice is a physician-directed program that addresses the medical, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of the terminally ill and their families. Hospice care is provided by a team of healthcare professionals, clergy, and volunteers who actively involve family and friends in the care of their loved one. We are grateful for the many tribute gifts we receive to continue the many services necessary to deliver compassionate care.
In 2003, twelve women of color came together to raise awareness about cancer in the African-American community in our region. This group known as Sisters United for Prevention, has increased cancer awareness in the community for more than 12 years. The Community Mercy Foundation is proud to assist the Sisters in their mission to create opportunities for cancer support, encourage early detection and celebrate cancer survivors. Through the diligent efforts of the Sisters, charitable funds have been made available for cancer patients with emergency financial needs.
