SPECIAL ADVER TISING SECTION Resource » continued from page 112 2014—CULTURAL OUTREACH PROGRAM expands to provide much needed education and support to underserved communities by breaking through cultural barriers. Gloria’s Angels Program is introduced. This program provides that little extra to people in need by offering four differ-ent services: Healthy Meals delivers nutritious meals to women in treatment; oncology massage relieves chronic pain for women in treatment and post-treatment women suffering the lingering effects of chemo and radia-tion; comfort care bags are distributed to breast surgeons’ offices and given to newly diagnosed patients; and the metastatic program provides special services for women and their families living with metastatic disease. 2015—GLORIA’S ANGELS EXPANDS with the addition of a light house-keeping service and caregivers services. The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation has grown and changed over the last decade, but it has never faltered from its mission to raise breast cancer awareness, increase breast health education, enhance the quality of life for breast cancer patients, as well as their families and friends, and to generate funding for local breast health programs. The Foundation has been able to provide free programs and services through private donations, corporate sponsorships and some grants, with ninety cents of every dollar raised going towards these programs and services. It has joined the ranks as a Rhode Island favorite, and the mere mention of this small organization’s name brings a feeling of comfort, knowing its staff and volunteers are always willing to help. “RIMI’s friendly technologists take such good care of me. Joan and Kathie are always right there to help me.” ~ Holly World class medical imaging …. focusing on quality. Holly’s chronic disease requires her to have an MRI every six months.

Holly also enjoys the patient-friendly environment from the moment she walks through RIMI’s door. Her neurologist appreciates the highest quality images and ability to consult with RIMI’s world-class radiologists. You have a choice in your imaging provider.
