Dedications at the Pardee Cancer Center

On Friday, May 24, donors dedicated Infusion Bays in the Pardee Cancer Center. Mrs. Diana Hoffman, accompanied by her daughter, Stephanie and her son, Evan dedicated Infusion Bay #7 to her late husband, Bill. “Bill received wonderful treatment at Pardee,” said Diana, “While we wanted a different outcome, we as a family are proud to dedicate this room in his memory, knowing our support will help other patients receive the same compassionate care.”

James T. and Elizabeth Logan dedicated Infusion Bay #8 in honor of the doctors and nurses at the Cancer Center. “I have worked in healthcare facilities and have been treated in some fine ones, and Pardee stands up there with the best of them,” said James. “The people at the Cancer Center are top notch.”

The Hoffmans’ and Logans’ support will help the staff and Center acquire new and upgraded equipment. $11,000 is still needed for the purchase of additional exam tables and an upgraded Brevera Breast Biosys system.

Please consider a gift so future patients can continue to receive the same excellent care and treatment as these generous donors.
