New iPads help patients pass the time

Thanks to generous community donations, patients receiving chemotherapy at North Star Lodge are now offered a welcome distraction during their medication infusions. Many patients spend more than an hour receiving their treatment which requires them to remain in a chair. Access to education, movies, and games on the new tablets helps patients relax and pass the time and improves their overall experience of care.

Other patient support services funded through The Memorial Foundation are mammogram scholarships, lymphedema therapy, oncology rehabilitation and exercise program, and nutritional guidance.
