Cancer touches many in our community. It will impact almost one of every four individuals, and is second only to heart disease as a leading cause of death. ProHealth Care has organized the three annual ProHealth Care Walks for Cancer to help change these statistics and show support in our community for cancer patients, families and survivors.
About the Pro HealthCare Foundation
When you Walk for Cancer, your contributions flow through the ProHealth Care Foundation to enhance cancer care for your family members, friends, neighbors or even you.
The ProHealth Care Foundation raises money throughout the year to continually improve the health of the community. A large part of the Foundation’s efforts focus on bringing cancer care to the 1,400 newly diagnosed patients who turn to ProHealth Care each year for treatment and support. The Walks for Cancer raised almost $400,000 in 2013. This year, our goal is to reach the $5.5 million mark in dollars raised since 1997.
Walks for Cancer funds have helped to expand 3D mammography’s reach to three ProHealth Care locations. This advanced imaging technology helps to detect up to 40 percent more cancers than conventional mammography. More than 5,000 patients have benefited from 3D mammography’s availability. In addition, funds raised last year enabled 193 cancer patients to enroll in clinical trials, and financially supported the roles of dietitians and oncology nurse navigators who have a direct and positive impact on the patient experience and quality of life. Walks for Cancer contributions also launched our new cancer survivorship program, which begins at the time of diagnosis and focuses on the physical, emotional, spiritual and whole person needs of our cancer survivors.
With plans to open in early 2015, ProHealth Care’s new freestanding cancer center in Pewaukee is taking shape. It’s designed from the patient’s point of view, based on a vision of the ideal patient experience. The center will provide cancer services in one convenient location encompassing diagnostics, treatment, cancer rehabilitation and community education. This new center will complement our other cancer services at the Mukwonago, Oconomowoc and Waukesha locations.
