Cancer surgery society presents top honor to Kimberly Duchossois
Date:3/5/2011

sible care, Kimberly and her family made the first of two transformational gifts in 2003 to create and endow the American Cancer Society Patient Navigation Services. Although initially restricted to Chicago, Patient Navigation Services have now rolled out nationwide to serve the millions who will face a cancer diagnosis.

Navigators guide and support cancer patients, their families and caregivers throughout the difficult and complicated process of dealing with a cancer diagnosis. Services in the program range from counseling and transportation to state-of-the-art cancer care and treatment options.

Navigators are especially valuable for those who have difficulty accessing quality care and support. They can provide individualized assistance to patients, families, and caregivers; facilitate timely access to quality medical and psychosocial care; and help patients overcome health care system barriers.

"Thanks to support from Kim and her family for this approach," Posner said, "the American Cancer Society reached more than 31,000 new cancer patients in Illinois alone in 2010 and 500,000 patients and their caregivers across the country with comprehensive services. This effort is invaluable in addressing the cancer patient's needs in a comprehensive manner which is what they need and deserve."

The Duchossois Family Foundation, under Kimberly's guidance, empowers cancer researchers and those facing cancer at all levels, Posner said. "It supports scholars and academic institutions, but it also helps those in family and social services, and those facing end-of-life issues."
