Goshen Center for Cancer Care Colleagues honored by the American Cancer Society

  |  1 minute read

Three patient advocates with Goshen Center for Cancer Care received the Dedication Award at this year's Coaches vs. Cancer Night of the Stars event, held at the United Federal Credit Union Rooftop at Four Winds Field in South Bend, Ind.
Elizabeth Stout, Survivor Network Coordinator; Julie Hochstetler, Patient Care Coordinator; and Hollie Carlson, Community Outreach Coordinator, were honored for their advocacy and support services for patients with cancer. The award recognized their collaboration on a grant application to reduce transportation cost barriers for patients who travel to and from treatment at the Center for Cancer Care. The $10,000 community transportation grant from the American Cancer Society provides gas cards or driver expense reimbursements for patients who meet certain financial criteria.
"This financial assistance program lifts a burden from patients so they can receive the vital care they need to treat or cure their cancer," said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer.
Grant funds have assisted 78 patients who have traveled from 14 counties in three states to the Center for Cancer Care.
Night of the Stars is hosted by Notre Dame Men's Basketball Coach Mike Brey and the American Cancer Society. It is part of a national Coaches vs. Cancer campaign led by the National Association of Basketball Coaches to increase cancer awareness and promote advocacy programs.
