The Hardin Memorial Health Foundation (HMHF) Board of Directors approved a $28,000 request to create a new Cancer Resource Center at the HMH Cancer Care Center on Robinbrooke Boulevard in Elizabethtown. The board, during its August meeting, unanimously approved the request to construct, furnish and equip a location where cancer patients and their families can find information, support and resources they may need.
HMH Assistant Vice President of Cancer Care Services Nancy Bowles and former cancer patient, HMH volunteer and Elizabethtown City Attorney D. Dee Shaw made the request, calling the center a valuable and needed service.
Shaw, a breast cancer survivor, has advocated for the center since she first sought treatment at HMH.
“I looked at what other hospitals offer patients, and I knew we could do better,” said Shaw. “A resource center like the one we will create not only provides information, but it will help cancer patients know that they are not alone in their journey.”
