We offer several programs to help women with advanced/metastatic cancer at different stages of their journey. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are helping women with advanced/metastatic cancer by providing food assistance to those who qualify and assisting them in filling applications to obtain resources available from other organizations.
All our programs are focused on helping women diagnosed with advanced cancer (Stage 4/metastatic/cancer that has spread to other parts of the body). We are helping women with breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, melanoma, leukemia, lymphoma, and other types of cancer.
Program 1: Patient Navigation
We help women with advanced cancer understand their disease, the opportunities for medical services (including availability of clinical trials for their specific disease) and the challenges faced. We help each woman along the journey through education, support and companionship. We also help women identify financial and other resources available to them. Due to COVID-19, our transportation help is on hold.
Program 2: Activities to Enhance Quality of Life
We promote activities and help women identify ways that may help improve their mental, physical and emotional well-being so they feel better and remain engaged as they battle with advanced cancer. Currently, we have started a support group for patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer (English and Spanish). Call us at 713-661-4045 if you would like to participate in this support group.
Program 3: End of Life Resources
We help women with advanced cancer when standard of care therapies have failed by providing resources available for this stage of their journey, educating them about their options, legal documents required and providing companionship as needed.
Program 4: Scientific Research
We conduct patient-centered scientific research to explore new ways to complement or improve outcomes of standard of care therapies. We also collaborate with medical professionals in improving quality of life and survival outcomes of women with advanced cancer.
