Locally, The Lydia Project grants funds for rent, utility, medical supplies, and prescription assistance to women who are unable to afford these basic expenses while undergoing cancer treatment and who reside in Georgia’s Burke, Columbia, McDuffie and Richmond Counties; and South Carolina’s Aiken and Edgefield Counties.
Women needing overnight stay to receive cancer treatment or testing in the CSRA find incredible help from Lydia’s lodging services. The ten bedroom facility with twenty beds and a private bathroom for each room provides a retreat environment for women and their caregivers. Women who reside more than thirty miles from Augusta or Aiken can stay at the Daksha Chudgar Lydia House for closer proximity to their physician or treatment site.
In many cities nationwide, physician offices and hospitals distribute Lydia totes directly to patients. See if your community is already part of the The Lydia Project network.
Lydia provides physicians, nurses, social workers and other healthcare professionals a place to go for supportive and financial assistance for their patients. Just having the extra support Lydia gives makes an impacting difference in patients’ care. Lydia meets a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided.
Women in all 50 states and many countries have received totes and support from The Lydia Project. Dedicated volunteers all over the nation help make outreach possible to women served.
