Careity Foundation is dedicated to providing on site support services in an oncology setting for cancer patients and funding early detection mammograms and diagnostics for those in need.
The myriad needs of cancer patients and their families extend far beyond medical care. Psychological, spiritual and emotional services, while coping with a stressful diagnosis, provide incalculable support.
Careity begins at home, we keep it local.
Psychotherapy, Social Worker And Chaplain Services
Psychotherapy counseling sessions are offered to cancer patients and their families as they are dealing with various emotional issues stemming from their cancer diagnosis. Depression, anxiety, grief, anger, fear, stress, insomnia and feeling overwhelmed are typically addressed.
Dietician Services, Nutritional Supplements
Nutrition plays an important role in cancer treatment and recovery. Registered and licensed dietitians help patients in their fight with cancer. A good nutrition plan helps keep the body stronger. Nutritional supplements are also provided to economically challenged patients.
Medical Massage Therapy, Reflexology, Acupuncture
These medical therapies are provided to patients to help them manage and better tolerate pain and nausea. It gives them a better opportunity to consider the positive aspects of the drugs in spite of some of the negative impact on the body.
Mammograms, Diagnostics, Biopsies And Surgeries
Careity offers free early detection and a critical comprehensive in-depth program for patients who are diagnosed. Access to our team of physicians for consults and surgery is rapid. Timely communication of treatment plans is vitally important. Within 48 hours of diagnosis, patients are contacted by a Patient Coordinator, through our team at The Center For Cancer and Blood Disorders. Careity patients are also eligible for clinical trials.
Patient Gas Cards
Cancer patients quite often exhaust their finances due to loss of employment, loss of insurance or lack of both. Many patients in our community have very long distances to travel for treatment and doctor visits. Radiology patients face a situation of having to commute to treatment on a daily basis for a long period of time. Many are forced into a position to choose between food and fuel. Our team of social workers determine the needs of economically challenged patients within our community.
