The Lydia Project

Dec 19, 2010 by April
One of the resources I found when I was diagnosed with cancer was The Lydia Project: "Where women coping with cancer are not alone." This 501(c)(3) non-profit was founded by a group of  Augusta, Georgia businesswomen. Any woman facing any type of cancer is able to contact this foundation for various types of support. In addition to providing beautiful tote bags containing a journal and lotion, the volunteers help patients with emotional and spiritual needs. Women may send specific prayer requests, and may ask for phone calls and emails.
