Women diagnosed with cancer can experience overwhelming emotional, physical, financial and social challenges. With proceeds from the annual Decorators’ Show House, St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild partnered with Eskenazi Health to establish the EMBRACE program with the goal that no woman faces cancer alone.
The Eskenazi Health EMBRACE team reaches out to newly diagnosed women, helping them through the confusing array of emotions and information that come with a cancer diagnosis. EMBRACE provides encouragement and addresses many of the concerns confronting women with cancer.
As if a diagnosis of cancer isn’t frightening enough, many women receiving treatment at Eskenazi Health are already faced with significant challenges in life, including limited financial means. The EMBRACE program provides services that literally wrap around these women, who many times have no other support systems to count on.
Eskenazi Health EMBRACE provides supportive services through a holistic approach, strengthening women’s ability to adjust to life with cancer.
