Foundation Recognizes Patient Navigator Jackie Glenn of The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas for Work with Breast Cancer Patients

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.

“Jackie’s role as the primary advocate for and liaison between patients and our cancer treatment specialists enables us to offer comprehensive patient care, not just core treatment,” said CCLM Executive Director Judy Handshy. “Her contributions to the success of our patient treatment programs cannot be overstated.”

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.”

The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation’s directive is to detect, treat, educate and eliminate breast cancer in Northern Virginia. Founded in 2007, the foundation has helped more than 500 women and provided nearly $500,000 in grants to local charities, non-profits, and regional research efforts.
