Making Strides of Chicago

TEAM INSPIRE

Welcome to our Team Page. We’ve formed a team because this is a small way for us to give back to the American Cancer Society for all it has done, and continues to do for our patients. As a small, community-based cancer center, our partnership with ACS allows us to offer a variety of programs for the mind, body and spirit of our patients that we could not offer without them.

Programs like Look Good, Feel Better and Tender Loving Care (TLC) provide our patientswith free cosmetics, wigs, and access to trained aestheticians and wig fitters. Patients are given free or low-cost lumpectomy and mastectomy products, and comfy head coverings. These products and services are invaluable in helping patients deal with changes in appearance, and improving confidence during an incredibly difficult time.

In many regions, the American Cancer Society provides rides for patients to and from treatment; free lodging to patients and their families at their Hope Lodges (or deeply discounted hotel rooms in areas where a Hope Lodge is not available) for those who have to travel very far just to get to treatment.

The ACS website is an invaluable resource for patients and clinicians. Patients can find answers about their diagnosis and treatment regimens; get access to support groups; and learn about life after cancer. ACS provides cancer center staff with 100’s of books and pamphlets to help educate our patients.

Behind the scenes, ACS provides direct funding to cancer researchers, and sends both volunteer advocates & paid lobbyists to Capitol Hill to fight for government funding of cancer research. They have also been instrumental in legislation to increase access to preventative screenings; in expanding and now protecting access to healthcare; and banning smoking in public spaces and reducing tobacco marketing to kids & teens.

Without ACS and their ongoing support, we would not be able to provide the high level of patient care we strive for. We support ACS, because they ALWAYS SUPPORT US!

Please consider joining our team or donating in support of ACS, or even volunteering with ACS so they can continue to provide such amazing services to our patients.

Thank you,The Cancer Team of the Presence Health Lakeshore Region aka "TEAM INSPIRE"

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
