Your sponsorship and generous support of Wine Women & Shoes will benefit Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital's cancer services for women and associated strategic program priorities. Our vision is for all women in the community to have access to comprehensive, quality and compassionate care when faced with a cancer diagnosis. Too many times, women are overwhelmed with life-altering issues that compound the complexities of their cancer treatment.
Challenges associated with cancer cross all racial and socioeconomic boundaries and can influence one's ability to actively fight cancer and ultimately impact one's chances for long-term survival. The challenges are endless, including access to early cancer screenings, physician and hospital costs, transportation issues, availability of education and supportive resources, and affordability of wigs, dressings, prostheses, garments and other supplies. These barriers can add enormous stress at a time that arguably is one of the most difficult times in a woman's life.
Women are nurturers and often place the needs of their family before their own. We will go without if it means our family will experience less anxiety and greater well-being. But a cancer diagnosis demands an active and aggressive response which causes seemingly insurmountable odds for many women. We want to make sure that no woman has to sacrifice her health due to competing burdens of everyday life . . . and this can be achieved!
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 Cleveland Clinic Mercy Cancer Center's efforts to assist all women throughout their cancer journey. There is nothing stronger than the collective power of women helping women!
