Each year at its annual meeting, the Cancer Patient Navigators of Georgia presents the award for Excellence in Patient Navigation to a Georgia resident, program or organization that has demonstrated an appreciation of the essential role of cancer patient navigators. This award includes a $2,000 grant co-sponsored by GASCO and Georgia CORE. 

 

2019 Matt Mumber Visionary Award

Lynn Rabun is the recipient of the 2019 Matt Mumber Visionary Award. An Oncology Navigator at Redmond Regional Medical Center, Lynn helped develop and implement the first dedicated nurse navigation program for breast and GI patients at Redmond. Lynn's nominator described Lynn with the following words: "Lynn leads with her heart. She walks the cancer journey with patients as if she is walking it with someone she dearly loves. It is not just a job to her. Lynn demonstrates the holistic, compassionate care that the ‘Father of Navigation’,' Dr. Harold Freeman, envisioned years ago and Dr. Matt Mumber continues today."
