About The Fund - Geraldine G. Schultz Fund for Breast Cancer Survivors
When the permanent fund reaches $2 million, it will provide $100,000 each year for the kinds of services Dr. Schultz and the Breast Cancer Team have championed. The Fund will sustain No More Sleepless Nights ™ and other supportive care programs for breast cancer patients and their families that educate them about prevention, screening, treatment and survivorship issues. The Fund also will enhance integrative therapies designed to complement surgical, radiation and infusion therapies to reduce pain and anxiety in the clinical setting. Some of these include "healing touch", aromatherapy, visual imagery and mindfulness.
The Geraldine G. Schultz Fund for Breast Cancer Survivors reflects UM St. Joseph's commitment to loving service and compassionate care. These healing therapies include:
- Individual Counseling
- Peer-to-peer Support - Survivors Offering Support (SOS)
- Supportive Groups: Partner Support and Transition to Wellness
- Spiritual Care for Patients and Families
- Symptom and Pain Management
- Living Will
- Health Care Agent Designation
- Healing Touch

On a journey to find a cure for breast cancer now ... so our daughters and granddaughters won't have to.
