A Special Note from the Patient Navigator

 UVA Cancer Center ... Just sharing
"I am writing to express my appreciation for the generous efforts and contributions of Interfaith Humanitarian Sanctum. IHS contributions have a significant impact for numerous patients receiving care at University of Virginia Health System. Patients' caregivers may also be impacted by the services of IHS.

I have contacted Interfaith Humanitarian Sanctum leadership on several occasions to request lodging assistance for patients. Patients travel significant distances to appointments and may be unable to travel home same day. If the UVA Hospitality House is unable to accommodate the patient, we need an alternative solution. Expenditures often increase and income decreases when there is a cancer diagnosis. Patients may not be able to afford the cost of a hotel stay. Having a community resource through IHS, a short term solution, can often be secured.
                                                                                                Sincerely,Faith Havran,Pt Navigator
