PHC Uses Flowers To Fight Cancer

PHC Uses Flowers To Fight Cancer


Peninsula Hospital Center (PHC) reaped the benefits of the American Cancer Society’s fundraising efforts to fight cancer when bright bunches of daffodils, the ACS exclusive Symbol of Hope, were delivered to cancer patients and others throughout Peninsula Hospital Center and Peninsula Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation on Tuesday, March 23. Each year, the American Cancer Society designates hospital facilities as recipients of the Gifts of Hope and the patients at Peninsula Hospital Center were very touched to receive the daffodil gifts this year.  “They were so surprised and happy when they realized the vase of daffodils was for them,” said Aleaze Logan, a 20 year volunteer and member of the PHC Auxiliary.  “It was truly touching to see their faces brighten.” Pictured, “You help make my life so much easier,” said PHC Chemotherapy outpatient, Irma Pinzon, a recipient of a Gift of Hope, as she is assisted by Janet DePaolo, RN, OCN.Peninsula Hospital Center (PHC) reaped the benefits of the American Cancer Society’s fundraising efforts to fight cancer when bright bunches of daffodils, the ACS exclusive Symbol of Hope, were delivered to cancer patients and others throughout Peninsula Hospital Center and Peninsula Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation on Tuesday, March 23.
