COMMUNITY NEED

Good nutrition is an important and often overlooked part of a cancer patient’s treatment. The Ingalls Development Foundation, in partnership with the Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center and Feed 1st organization, has created nutrition stations specifically for oncology infusion patients. Our goal is not only bettering patients’ quality of life and meeting their nutritional goals, but also addressing food insecurities among patients for whom good nutrition is not easily accessible or available. Costs of prescription drugs and treatments, paired with poor or no insurance coverage, can force patients to choose between quality food and other necessities.
