Rochelle Community Hospital and the Foundation are pleased to announce the formation of a new program with resources for cancer patients called “All About Me." Del Monte has led the way along with other community partners, First National Bank, Xpressions Hair Salon, RTHS Volleyball Team and Panache Salon in raising monies and awareness for breast cancer. The proceeds from their activities have created the All About Me Cancer fund for the Rochelle Community Hospital Foundation. (You can even donate online!)
A Cancer Care Bag: All chemotherapy patients will be provided with a “care bag” containing items to comfort and assist them as they receive cancer treatment. The tote bag will include items such as a water bottle, blanket, lotion, lip balm, nail file, toothbrush, date organizer, nutrition information and more. Funds donated to the Rochelle Community Hospital Foundation for breast cancer awareness will be used to purchase items for the care bags.
Scholarship Program: Even with insurance, cancer is costly. People with cancer and their families can be devastated physically, emotionally, mentally — and financially. The All About Me Cancer Program will provide grants to qualified cancer patients at Rochelle Community Hospital from the Ogle County area so they can better manage their road to recovery. The All About Me Scholarship Program will help to improve patients' quality of life with valuable local resources and financial support. This scholarship offers a patient in need, a one-time grant up to $500 per year or as funds are available.
The All About Me Scholarship can provide assistance and/or gift cards for transportation, prescriptions, prosthetics, wigs, scarves, food or meals.
