The Foundation strives every day to bring HERS - Hope, Empowerment, Renewal, and Support - to their patients.
Charitable Program: Program provides bras and prosthesis to under-served and under-insured women in the San Francisco Bay Area. They primarily serve the clients insured by Medi-Cal, which accounts for people in the poverty level determined by the State of California.
Lymphedema Project: After a woman has had breast cancer surgery, she may also face a diagnosis of lymphedema resulting from the removal of lymph nodes. This condition involves swelling of the soft tissues of the arm, hand or chest. The swelling may be accompanied by numbness, discomfort, and sometimes infection. Compression garments are used to prevent this condition and can help restrict future growth of established lymphedema. Medicare does not cover these garments, and all other insurance companies have their own rules, with most insurers declining coverage for these garments.
Clients in this program receive garments at NO COST in two ways:
1.Uninsured: These are clients with no insurance coverage at all for any product, as well as those who are covered through the Medi-Cal program.
2.Underinsured: These are clients that have insurance coverage but their provider does not cover lymphedema garments.
Hair With Care: Women either beginning or ending their chemotherapy treatment can seek refuge and comfort in the program and regain the self-esteem that may have been lost as their hair thinned during their treatment. Hair with Care provides women of all ages the opportunity to meet with a certified Cosmetologist in a supportive, caring, and understanding environment, where their needs and concerns come first.
Helping women feel empowered and beautiful again is what the program strives for and delivers to each customer.
