Your sponsorship of Wine Women & Shoes will benefit Mercy Medical Center’s cancer services for women. Obvious women’s cancers include breast, cervical, ovarian, and uterine….but significant numbers of women endure cancers such as lung, colorectal, pancreatic, thyroid, lymphomas, melanoma and others. Our vision is for all women in our community to have access to needed education, cancer screenings, quality cancer care, and supportive resources. Women like “Deborah,” a full time working mom who felt a lump in her breast but put off seeking medical care because of high insurance deductibles and the desire to focus on the needs of her children first. Unfortunately for “Deborah,” this delay resulted in a late stage diagnosis and an uncertain chance for long-term survival. We want to make sure that no woman has to sacrifice her health due to the competing burdens of everyday life.
With your help, women facing cancer and their families will have the resources they need to get through a cancer diagnosis and will have the best possible chance for survival. Your partnership with Mercy Service League will enhance Mercy Cancer Center’s efforts to assist all women through out their cancer journey.
"The mission of Mercy Service League is to support the ideals and philosophies of Mercy Medical Center and the ministry of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine through service, outreach and education within the Medical Center and the Community.”
