In-hospital cancer care ‘remarkable’

We truly are lucky to have the modern day technology at our doorstep

The Abbotsford Regional Hospital cancer Clinic, open since 2008, can be proud of their overall patient care and treatment programming.

Since undergoing cancer treatments 15 years ago, and now once more, I found it remarkable that the present staff members treat patients like a person, not like just a number.

Learning the steps one must go through in cancer treatments can be a trying experience for new patients. The added cancer treatment counseling services also is an incredibly helpful initiative in this time of need.

My heartfelt thanks go out to, Surgeon Dr .Colleen Dyck, DR. Uhlman and the cancer treatment teams, for the immediate competent care, portrayed with compassion, that I received as they helped to stem the tide of a potentially fast spreading cancer.

Kindly keep saving lives. It is appreciated more then you can ever imagine. Sometimes it takes a hard knocking to learn how to be more thankful to the hospital staff and the modern day technological services stationed right at our doorsteps, free of charge. Oh, how spoiled we really are.
