Porter Receives Grant to Support Nutrition Counseling for Area Cancer Patients

The Cancer Patient Support Foundation of Vermont has awarded a grant to Porter Hospital to support nutritional counseling for cancer patients.  The $3,700 grant will be available to offset any out-of-pocket expenses cancer patients might otherwise incur and “fund gaps in insurance reimbursement for nutritional counseling and other supportive services” according to a letter from Sarah Lemnah the Executive Director of the Foundation.

“We look forward to our new relationship with Porter, striving mutually to make the journey cancer patients and their families face a bit easier,” she wrote.  “The goal of the grant is to ensure that cancer patients at Porter have no out-of-pocket expenses for these important services” said PMC spokesperson Ron Hallman.  “We are very pleased to be partnering with the Cancer Patient Support Foundation to better serve our community,” Hallman added.
