BREAST CANCER EMERGENCY AID FOUNDATION
July 5, 2011

I am a Nurse Navigator for the Norma Pfriem Breast Care Center at Bridgeport Hospital. When patients are first diagnosed with breast cancer they are raw from the whirlwind of testing, biopsies surgeries and ultimately chemotherapy or radiation. Part of our navigation is to offer them comfort and stabiltiy during this journey as well as getting them into their treatment course. When I offer them financial assistance from the BCEAF in the form of bill payment or food assistance they feel so comforted in the fact that someone "out there" is thinking about them and wants to help.
The help they receive is so vital to them as many are losing time at work and don't know how they will juggle the demands of chemotherapy with their daily living expenses.
It is truly a "bright spot "in their treatment course that puts a smile on their faces.
Thank You to the BCEAF for helping my patients continue to heal with hope for the future.
