Your Gifts in Action:
Truman Medical Center & their Patient Navigator Program
Death from breast cancers occurs disproportionately among women who are uninsured or underserved. This rate is higher for those living in Truman Medical Center’s direct service area.
The overarching goal of TMC’s patient navigation program is to diminish the barriers to treatment our at-risk patients face and successfully provide them access to care, individualized emotional support, and practical needs for the duration of treatment.
This year we will assist 60 (sixty) patients diagnosed with breast cancer at TMC as they maneuver the complex health care system and overcome obstacles to care.
Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City is proud to support Truman Medical Centers with a grant providing funding for their patient navigation program that supports so many in our community each year. Truman Medical Centers has received funding from Komen Kansas City every year since the founding of our affiliate 25 years ago. Their impact on the health and wellness of our community is immeasurable.
As we celebrate 25 years of service to the Kansas City community we take our hats off to the work TMC does and to those they help every day.
