new era in Cancer patient Support
The Emergency Patient Support Network provides hospitals a platform to provide emergency support for their oncology patients and ensure they do not go without basic necessities. Everyday oncology social workers in hospitals across Philadelphia and Camden submit emergency referrals for patients and families who are going hungry, losing their homes, or unable to provide other basic necessities. Legacy of Hope, through an ever growing number of partnerships, provides the emergency support in as little as 24 hours.
The Philadelphia Police Department is proud to be working with Legacy of Hope, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center and ShopRite to make sure people who are among the most vulnerable, like those combating cancer, are not forgotten and can still get the nutrition they need.
The work of Legacy of Hope and their Emergency Patient Support Network is a shining example of community partnerships that will have an immediate, measurable impact for our patients and their families.
Given the uncertain times we are facing and the increased risk for those who are battling cancer, we are inspired and proud to be a part of the Legacy of Hope efforts in partnership with the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center- Jefferson Health and the Philadelphia Police Department. The ShopRite stores we operate are honored to help provide this life saving support to those in our community.
