C.A.R.E. is dedicated to providing services supporting women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer and their families.

The services listed on our menu are intended to provide support, education and assistance when needed. Whether newly diagnosed, currently in treatment, or post treatment, one of the benefits of our services is the ability to interact with others who have been on the same journey.

 

If you have any questions about our services, please contact us.

Woman to Woman

https://ocrahope.org/patients/resources/woman-to-woman/

 

The Woman to Woman Program offers emotional support and mentoring to women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer through trained volunteer survivors.

Support Group

C.A.R.E. provides a monthly support group for women with a diagnosis of a gynecologic cancer, their families, friends or loved ones. The opportunity to learn from one another and receive support from others wherever they are in their journey is appreciated by all. Our support groups include presenters on varying topics, fun activities or just some time to ask questions, share, or enjoy one another.  Email notices go out prior to each monthly support group meeting, so if you are not already on the list, please subscribe now by entering your email on the home page.

Patient Financial Assistance

C.A.R.E. is partnering with our local Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation to provide financial assistance services to women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer.  We are only able to provide financial assistance for rent, utilities, and transportation.  You may access eligibility and assistance by going to the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation website at https://fcsf.org/ and click on “Financial Aid”.

High Tea

C.A.R.E. volunteers who themselves are survivors, offer High Tea patients currently in treatment at the Health First Cancer Institute.  High Tea provides patients and their families the opportunity to meet survivors who themselves were patients at the infusion center.  They share experiences or just provide a smile and words of encouragement.

The idea and enthusiasm for High Tea was from a gracious and lovely woman named Julia.  As a survivor of gynecologic cancer, Julia wanted to support women who were currently experiencing chemotherapy. The initial tea was named for her, “Julia’s High Tea”.  

Due to COVID, this service is on hold.  We hope to resume services in the future.
