Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) was recently awarded an $8,000 grant from Pink Aid, a charitable organization that helps to fund breast cancer support services for women in need, for the period March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019.
“We are so fortunate to be able to offer financial support to our breast cancer patients through this grant from Pink Aid,” said Carolina Starr-Manning, DKH Director of Critical Care and Cancer Services.
“The grant will allow eligible breast cancer patients to access long and short term home care and personal care, as well as transportation to medical appointments and other needed outings, through Day Kimball’s Homemakers division,” Starr-Manning explained. “This is the first time Pink Aid has helped to support our patients through our friends at Homemakers who already serve hundreds of women in northeast Connecticut with in-home nonmedical needs.”
Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need, and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others.
