St. Luke’s Foundation funds Resource Room for St. Luke’s Hospital Infusion Center
Published 8:00 am Friday, November 16, 2018
Thanks to dollars raised from last year’s Ache Around the Lake, St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation assisted in funding the Resource Room at St. Luke’s Hospital Infusion Center.
Designed to help people with cancer deal with the side effects of treatment, the Resource Room is free and available to all cancer patients in the community, regardless of where they are being treated.
“The intent of our Resource Room is to assist patients in looking and feeling the best possible during their cancer journey,” said Lynn Hensley, director of the Infusion Center.
Often, the side effects of cancer treatment can leave patients feeling down and self-conscious. Through the Resource Room, a number of services and resources are available at no cost.
Some of the available items include wigs, hats, scarves and a safe, comfortable place to try these items and see what works best.
The Resource Room is managed by staff of the Infusion Center and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Those interested in learning more may call 828-894-0111.
Those interested in learning more about the foundation can call 828-894-2693.
