This year’s Annual Friends of Lourdes Fund is dedicated to raising much needed funds in support of Lourdes Hospital and its mission of providing compassionate, loving healthcare in the holy tradition of St. Vincent de Paul and the Daughters of Charity to all who come to us for medical care.
Your generosity assists countless individuals in need of assistance.
Our Lourdes 3-D Hologic Mammography Upgrade, Oral Health Initiative, Sock Out Cancer and Hospice are just a few of the areas in which your support really makes a difference in people’s lives.
This year, Lourdes has upgraded all of its mammography machines from the old 2-Dimension, to state of the art 3-Dimensional Mammography units. Cancer, specifically breast cancer is a frightening diagnosis in anyone's life; however it is not hopeless. These new machines allow for earlier detection of breast cancer regardless of age or breast density with clearer lesion images (detecting 20%-65% more invasive breast cancers). These machines are a large step in Lourdes' efforts to combat breast cancer.
Last year we acquired a new Oral Health Mobile Van which will continue our work in providing and serving those in need of urgent dental care, especially children. This will truly bring many smiles to those children who need this vital service!
Sock Out Cancer assists patients and their families who are struggling with cancer. Through these funds multiple individuals are assisted in attaining the basic necessities of life such as help in paying their bills, their rent, medications or transport to and from medical appointments.
Our Hospice Program continues its comforting work of assisting patients and their families at this time in their lives. The care that is imparted is greatly appreciated by everyone involved.
