How to Help
Since 2003, the Woman to Woman program at the Mount Sinai Health System has provided invaluable support to thousands of women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer: mentoring, hope for positive outcomes, practical information throughout treatment and survivorship—and emotional comfort from women who know the challenges from their own experience.
The future of Woman to Woman is more important than ever. The number of women being treated for gynecologic cancer at Mount Sinai has never been higher. Each needs access to the services of Woman to Woman therefore ensuring the continuation and expansion of the Woman to Woman program is crucial. How can you help?
Monetary donations of any amount, no matter how large or small, are greatly appreciated and will be put to excellent use to make sure no woman has to face gynecologic cancer alone. Consider asking friends to donate in your honor for a birthday or holiday or make a donation.
We also welcome donations of items for our “comfort bags,” the “Comfort Cart,” and goody bags for our reunions. Please contact us if you have a connection to a company that might be willing to provide appropriate items or if you are willing to solicit items on Woman to Woman’s behalf.
Do you have a special skill or interest that might benefit our program? For example, are you a skilled graphic designer, a certified yoga instructor, or a technology whiz? We’d love to talk about how your expertise can help Woman to Woman.
Learn about the symptoms of gynecologic cancer and make sure to spread the word to all of the woman in your life.
