For the Cure 2

The Floyd Memorial Cancer Center of Indiana is pleased to announce their recent receipt of a $50,000 grant from the Louisville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The grant will provide funds to hire a Breast Cancer Nurse Navigator who will be tasked with improving breast cancer outcomes through education, early detection and patient navigation through their treatment journey.

The ultimate goal of the grant will be 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. Ultimately, Floyd Memorial, as well as the Komen Louisville Affiliate, is confident that this will 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.
