Linda Sherrington, Lemonade Fund COO who, together with her staff, works closely with hospital and community social workers to process grant applications, was invited to speak to Assuta Medical Centers’ social workers on January 4. The meeting was hosted by Assuta Medical Center in Ramat Hachayal, and included social workers from Assuta Hospitals across Israel – from Beer Sheva to Haifa.
Linda heard from the group how grateful they are for the Lemonade Fund’s support for their patients, and their eagerness to support our efforts, with testimonials and video interviews. They were particularly enthusiastic about the upcoming transition to a digital application process that will hopefully help them reach even more patients in need. Social Workers from various departments explained how accompanying illnesses affect breast cancer patients and how a holistic approach to helping them medically and financially is so important. Thanks to Dr. Julia Gouzman, Director of Social Work Services Department at Assuta Medical Centers and her colleagues for such a productive, and pleasant, gathering.
