The Pink Ribbon Program enhances the lives of women and men served by the High Point Medical Center’s Hayworth Cancer Center through knowledge, service and hope by offering support, education and compassionate care.
In addition to the Pink Ribbon Comfort Bags, the proceeds from Pink Ribbon Fund provide funding for CancerFitt, a 12- week fitness program and support group to help fight fatigue during treatment. The Pink Ribbon Program provides support for education in the Cancer Resource Center Library and education support for the Hayworth Cancer Center staff and patients.
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.
CancerFitt 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.
