Gratitude

by Dianne May, president & CEO

We’ve been talking a lot about being grateful here at Cancer Services. And as you might expect, the objects of our gratitude vary from person to person. But the most common response is the naming of a loved one. Someone who brightens our day, makes us laugh and offers just what we need when we need it.

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. I’m grateful for the gifts of donors who share their bounty to brighten another’s day. I’m grateful for the cancer patient who comes with a twinkle in his eye to share the latest joke and make me laugh. And I’m grateful for the wise and generous volunteers who know how to help when it is needed most.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A Heart Felt Thank You

From a client:

Thank you Cancer Services for…

  • Caring Hearts
  • Always being there and listening
  • Wig Bank
  • Massage, donated for me and my husband
  • Ronald Repka Foundation gift

Words truly do not express enough gratitude. I have been validated as a woman with cancer and it is okay to feel what I am feeling. That is a big statement. I was given such a caring heart in my Client Advocate, Maureen. She allowed me as much time as I needed and she always answered the phone to talk. She has been an angel to me through this journey. I am grateful for all she has done.
