When you don't know how to help, we do.
Alight supports local breast cancer patients and their families, in the greater Greensboro area, by providing financial, educational and emotional assistance as they navigate through their diagnosis, treatment options and plan of care. Through collaborative efforts with community and health agencies, patients and their families can make well-informed choices and have access to many significant resources. And, Alight Foundation is located inside the Cone Health Cancer Center, where face-to-face contact is so helpful in identifying needs and guiding patients to appropriate resources.
We know that our community is committed to taking care of its own. We have a goal to ensure that not one breast cancer patient feels alone or without adequate resources. You can help make a difference in their lives and the lives of their families. With your help, we can sustain a program of excellence in breast cancer patient care. And, if you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you’ve come to the right place to get that extra care.
MARY GORRELL JONES, Founder
Following her breast cancer diagnosis in 2003, Mary Gorrell Jones created the Alight initiative to provide adequate resources so others diagnosed with breast cancer could be better informed about treatment options and what to expect. In addition, she wanted to make sure each patient and their family had a support network to help them through the difficult times ahead. Mary’s desire was to help ease the fear, panic and disbelief of new patients so they could focus on the business of healing.
