Alight Program

The Alight Program at Cone Health Cancer Center. A diagnosis is where our help begins

Strong cancer patientWe know firsthand how a breast or gynecological cancer diagnosis changes your world immediately, and that’s why the Alight Program exists.

We’re here to provide financial, educational and emotional support to patients as they move through the treatment journey.

We Support Patients By:

  • Giving them the Journey Guide, a booklet that addresses aspects of treatment including financial and legal matters, survivor support, counseling, transportation and much more.
  • Providing limited financial support for patients with a demonstrated need through an emergency assistance fund.
  • Connecting them with Alight Guides, our team of survivor volunteers, to help the patient navigate their care and provide emotional support along the way.
  • Sharing opportunities for educational and emotional growth through annual patient retreats and Alight Night presentations offered by subject matter experts in an effort to keep the community informed about breast and gynecological cancer topics.

Get Connected

If you’re a breast or gynecological patient receiving care through Cone Heath in either Guilford or Rockingham County, the Alight Program is here to help. To learn more about our program, email us at or call 336-832-0027.
