The inspiration behind our video is that we live in a rural area, with the closest oncology center and specialists located a minimum of 88 miles away. Most citizens in our small town of Susanville, C.A. rely on family, friends and community support to get through difficult times; to drive us the long distances to specialty care, support us, care for us and sometimes battle for us.
It hit home for our facility when one of our own nurses was diagnosed with cancer. She described to us the feelings she experienced during her fight to survive. We decided to make the video as a tribute to her and other cancer patient’s struggles and successes from a small town against a big disease.
Thank you for inspiring our facility to make this video in support of cancer awareness.
