Floyd Memorial Cancer Center of Indiana Receives Susan G. Komen Foundation Grant

June 10, 2013

The Floyd Memorial Cancer Center of Indiana is pleased to  announce the recent receipt of a $21,150 grant from the Louisville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

By receiving this grant the outreach portion of the Cancer Center of Indiana’s Breast Cancer Nurse Navigator Program will be able to continue to provide care and treatment in the community to underprivileged residents of the New Albany Housing Authority.

The goal of the program is to lessen the burden on breast cancer patients and their loved ones by providing them with a nurse navigator in charge of coordinating their care and treatment. This program helps to improve patient outcomes by insuring the early detection and treatment of breast cancer and well-coordinated communication between patients, physicians and the rest of the healthcare team.
