Covenant wins LIVESTRONG grant for Cancer Transitions


Thanks to the support of thousands of Cedar Valley residents, a national cancer recovery program is coming to Waterloo.

We told you about the LIVESTRONG Community Impact Contest a few weeks ago. Tuesday afternoon, LIVESTRONG named Covenant Cancer Center as a contest winner.

Covenant will receive funding and support to implement a Cancer Transitions program -- helping survivors return to life after cancer.

"I'm already thinking of patients," said Timi Brown, who entered Covenant Cancer Center in the contest. "We're going to really get to take care of you from start to finish... and make sure you move on with your life and have the total success you're able to achieve. And that means a lot."

Brown is hoping to implement the program in a matter of weeks. She considers it a capstone to the treatment programs already in place at Covenant Cancer Center.
