Gainesville, Va. (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation has recognized Jackie Glenn, patient navigator at The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas (CCLM), for her tireless efforts to serve and support women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

The Middleburg, Va.-based foundation honored Glenn with a 2013 Cherry Blossom Champion award, citing her “passionate advocacy for women with breast cancer and her impressive empathy and care for the women undergoing treatment at The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas.” Dr. John Williams, CCLM Breast Center medical director, accepted the awards on Glenn’s behalf at The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation annual award dinner on May 19.

Glenn joined CCLM in April 2010 and launched the center's Patient Navigator Program. The program helps ensure that CCLM’s treatment is available to all patients, particularly those who may not have a strong support group. As a certified patient navigator, Glenn guides patients and their caregivers throughout the treatment process, providing needed information and support whenever possible.

“I help with everything from filling out grant applications for financial support, to finding local support groups, to guiding patients through the complex and sometimes daunting health care and insurance systems,” Glenn explained. “At the end of the day, if I’ve taken some of the burden off of the patient, I know I’ve succeeded.”
