“Mom was active at 83—right up until she was diagnosed with cancer. During the next five years of treatments and hospital stays, one thing stands out: the amazing kindness and compassion of the doctors, nurses and staff of the GHS Cancer Institute.

The care she received inspired us to give back. Then we learned about the blood and marrow transplant (BMT) unit—and how having the unit right here means patients don’t leave families, homes and jobs for weeks at a time. I had no idea!

We knew we’d found the thing Mom would have liked. Now, inside the new BMT unit is the Seymore Family nurse station—and, as it happens, the room where my mom was so well cared for.”
