CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Some of the money from the upcoming Martha’s Market in Charlottesville will help a special room inside Sentara Martha Jefferson’s Cancer Center.

It is a space for family and professional caregivers to recharge and ease some stress. It was added to the center in June 2020 with help from the women’s committee.

“This is actually a very unique program here at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital,” said Katy Kreienbaum, the coordinator of the Caregiver Center. “We are the first in the Sentara network to open a Caregiver Center, which is really exciting. And we’re kind of the pilot for the for the network and a system.”

Martha’s Market takes place Saturday, October 23 at IX Art Park and on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. It takes place from 9:00am until 5:00pm. NBC29 is a sponsor of the event.
