The Abbotsford Regional Hospital cancer Clinic, open since 2008, can be proud of its overall patient care and treatment programming.
Since undergoing cancer treatments 15 years ago, and now once more, I found it remarkable that the current staff members treat each patient 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 counselling services also is an incredibly helpful initiative in this time of need.
My heartfelt thanks go out to 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 than 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.
