Links of Love Prayer Ministry
Dedicated to lifting up the needs and concerns of others in prayer. The prayer chain is activated when we receive a prayer request. Cancer Center Patients, loved ones and our Cancer Center Associates are invited to place their requests in the prayer baskets available in various locations throughout the Cancer Center. The prayers are then linked as each intention is prayed for and presented once a month during Mass, which is held in the Holy Cross Chapel. During National Cancer Survivorship Week, we anticipate gathering, preferably at the Grotto on the main campus of the hospital, and hosting a special offering of all prayer intentions we have received.

Cancer risk assessment, screening and prevention programs are vital to educating people about reducing their chances of developing cancer and assessing the need for intervention. Under the direction of our genetic nurse counselor and the Bienes Cancer Center physicians, our Cancer Risk and Prevention Program is for anyone with cancer or a family history of cancer. The vast majority of participants are women who have or have had breast or ovarian cancer, or are at high risk of developing these two cancers. Click to learn more about Genetic Counseling.
