Store to help Cancer Patients Look and Feel Good


 
 

On Thursday, October 2, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., The Transformation Station in the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion at St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital will hold a grand opening celebration for a store that will help cancer patients look and feel good. The event will take place on the first floor of the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion, 225 Candler Drive, across from Candler Hospital.

The Transformation Station helps people fighting cancer look good and feel good. It supplies wigs, bras, gifts, compression garments and skin care products that help with the effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

It was designed and built in the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion as an easy place to get needed items in the same place patients are treated. The Transformation Station has four certified bra fitters on staff.

There is a fund available to help patients who might not be able to buy what they need. To donate, call the Transformation Station at 912-819-8386

The Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) at St. Joseph’s/Candler combines state-of-the-art technologies and a wealth of services under one roof. The 56,000- square foot Pavilion promotes healing with distinctive, individualized care in an environment that inspires hope and courage. The LCRP is home to many highly trained cancer specialists who offer an outstanding array of services specific to cancer patients and their families. Patients are able to enroll in clinical research trials while receiving access to cutting edge treatment options. The LCRP was selected to be part of the prestigious National Cancer Institute Community Cancer Centers Program – a threeyear pilot program designed to expand cancer research and deliver the latest treatment to more people. The Pavilion also hosts monthly support groups for cancer patients, survivors, and their loved ones.

In October, the LCRP is holding several events for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, including an open house of the new Transformation Station on October 2 from 12 Noon to 6 p.m. The Transformation Station was designed and built in the LCRP as an easy place to get needed items in the same place patients are treated. It helps those fighting cancer to look and feel good by supplying wigs, bras, gifts, compression garments, and skin care products that help with the effects of radiation and chemotherapy. The open house will feature refreshments, gift basket drawings, and free bra fittings for all women (not just cancer survivors). The LCRP is located on Reynolds Street, directly across from Candler Hospital.
