Milkshake Program


On a weekly basis, a “Nancy’s Friends” volunteer works with a hospital dietician on the unit to provide milkshakes to eligible patients. Sponsored by the NKF Foundation, rolling carts stocked with blenders, cups, straws, ice cream, syrup and milk make the rounds on New York-Presbyterian’s oncology floor, serving delicious and nutritious milkshakes that provide much-needed calories to patients who have lost their appetite due to treatment.
