Letter: Cancer center makes tough time easier

Posted

To the editor:

Who would think chemotherapy could be a good experience? I would not have thought so, but it has proven to be an eye-opening one for me.

From the first words of encouragement from Dr. Rebecca Caine and her assistant Jessica to my fourth of six infusions it has been nothing but positive. The nursing staff at the BMC Cancer Center's Hillcrest Campus is as fine as I'm sure you will find anywhere. Stacey, Tammy, Cheryl, and Marie have been my nurses so far and they are some of the most delightful caregivers anyone could ask for. They go about their rounds changing the different medications as called for in a serious and methodical way but the conversations in between are what makes my day and I'm sure the other patients in the infusion center. The ladies have a sense of humor and they make what could be a somber day so much brighter.

Dr. Sean Mullally and his assistant Rhonda have been very kind and patient (anyone who knows me, knows I need a lot of patience). It takes time the following weeks for the medications to work their way through the body and can be draining, but then I look forward to my next visit with these beautiful "angels of f mercy." Thanks and God bless all of you.

Connie Dillon Yannone,
