Mission Statement

The Lydia Project offers women with any kind of cancer comfort and support, their families the ability to cope and enlist help, and healthcare providers a resource to address the emotional, spiritual, and financial needs of their patients. Mission Statement: The Mission of the Lydia Project is to serve women facing cancer by providing hand-crafted tote bags, prayer and ongoing support.


The Lydia Project provides free services to women facing any type of cancer anywhere in the world. This support includes ongoing correspondence and encouragement every month for at least twelve months.

Locally, Lydia grants funds for rent, utility, medical supplies, and prescription assistance to women who are unable to afford these basic expenses while undergoing cancer treatment and who reside in Georgia's Burke, Columbia, McDuffie and Richmond Counties; and South Carolina's Aiken and Edgefield Counties.

Women needing overnight stay to receive cancer treatment or testing in the CSRA find incredible help from Lydia's Lodging Services. The ten bedroom facility with twenty beds and a private bathroom for each room provides a retreat environment for women and their caregivers. Women who reside more than thirty miles from Augusta or Aiken can stay at the Daksha Chudgar Lydia House for closer proximity to their physician or treatment site.
