“This new program will fill a much need gap in the system,” said Director of New Day, Gina Kell Spehn. “We can now work with the social workers at Beaumont directly to be in service to families exactly when they need it.”
The program calls for social workers at Beaumont to screen the patient’s (and their family’s) needs at the time they are receiving treatment for cancer. Families will then be referred to New Day to begin receiving assistance immediately.“No other foundation or group is providing this kind of help for families. This is a game-changer for the kind of care we can offer!”
Mary Kalil, a social worker with Beaumont is excited about this new program. “We can now get help to these families immediately”, said Kalil.
The New Day Foundation doesn’t only provide financial assistance. The foundation has a growing network of professionals offering their services for free or at reduced rates for cancer families.
“Some families have urgent financial needs,” said Kell Spehn. “Others simply need the fellowship of having others who have gone through this to talk to.”
