In The Pink Sponsors


Marianne's Room

Marianne's Room was established in 2002 as a resource center for women diagnosed with cancer. The special room, named in memory of Marianne Zirkle who succumbed to cancer in 1998, provides wigs, scarves, special "Chemo Caps", soft post-operative prosthesis requested by mastectomy patients and other services and support to assist women through their cancer treatment at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care aims to relieve suffering and improve quality of life for patients with advanced illness and for their families. Palliative Care is provided by an interdisciplinary team and offered in conjunction with all other appropriate forms of medical treatment, especially to support pain and symptom management.

Caring Embrace

Caring Embrace involves community members, Martha Jefferson employees, friends and volunteers who gather together weekly in the hospital lobby to knit or crochet shawls for people in need to caring, compassion and comfort. These shawls symbolize the caring embrace and Caring Tradition of the Martha Jefferson family. Proceeds from ITP funds the yarn and knitting materials.
