Studies have found that women with cancer that have strong emotional and physical support tend to better adjust to the changes cancer brings to their lives, have a more positive outlook and often report a better quality of life.
For the past 25 year, the Pathways program at the Connections in Summit has been helping to provide that support. One of the only local organizations that provides direct services to women with cancer, since 1994 Pathways has provided support and educational programs, free of charge, to women with a history of cancer regardless of their stage of treatment or survivorship.
With focus on the following programs, Pathways has made a difference in thousands of women’s lives.
Pathways Cooks Since 2011, Pathways Cooks has served over 11,000 meals to women undergoing cancer treatment and their families.
The Pathways Women’s Cancer Teaching Project Since 2003, cancer survivors, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals have come together to shared their experiences with patients through support groups and classes.
The Pathways Financial Assistance Fund With the help of donations, Pathways is able to help pay rent or medical, utility or other bills for those under financial duress.
Therapeutic Yoga Yoga classes are offered through the connection weekly.
All funds raised help not only women with cancer or who have a history of cancer, but their loved ones as well. Pathways relies on donations to continue to provide its programs free-of-charge.
