By Your Side Together

 

Unite for HER, a national nonprofit supporting breast cancer and ovarian cancer patients, and TOUCH, The Black Breast Cancer Alliance announce a strategic alliance to increase the quality of care for Black women in cancer clinical trials.

 

Through this partnership, TOUCHBBCA and Unite for HER will fund and deliver integrative services and therapies to breast and ovarian cancer patients involved in clinical trials via Touch BBCA’s Touch Care.

TOUCH Care focuses on driving trial matching and recruiting, assisting with the application process, managing the informed consent process, and providing coaching and counseling throughout the trial. This initiative provides on-staff nurse and patient navigators to optimize the patient experience for Black women. The TOUCH Care team works with pharmaceutical partners, researchers, and investigators to curate culturally agile, patient-centric trial experiences. 

Unite for HER’s Wellness Programs educate patients on how to build an individualized supportive care plan and are designed to support the following conditions:

 

  • Early Stage Breast Cancer

  • Metastatic Breast Cancer

  • Male Breast Cancer

  • Ovarian Cancer

  • Recurrent Ovarian Cancer
