The grant will help fund a Cancer Patient Navigator who will work with patients who are diagnosed with cancer assisting them from diagnoses through survivorship. The Cancer Patient Navigator will also work with caregivers, and help patients and their families to access resources that are available from many sources.

The Franklin Bi-Lo is the sponsor for the joint endeavor between AMC and Macon County Public Health for a monthly health education program, Ladies Night Out.

Earlier in the fall the Franklin Bi-Lo also sponsored a Golf Tournament to help pay for mammograms for the uninsured/underinsured people in Macon County. More than $3,000 was raised which will pay for approximately 15 mammograms.
