Staff at the NorthBay Cancer Center were surprised and honored to receive vases of flowers from Debbie Sexauer, a patient of Jonathan Lopez, M.D., NorthBay Cancer Center oncologist/hematologist.
Debbie had arranged to have flowers delivered to every staff member, and the occasion was her last chemo treatment. It was her way of showing thanks to all for the wonderful care and support she received, according to Bea Castro, oncology practice manager.
“Oncology staff goes that extra mile every day for our patients and a kind gesture like this validates to our staff that their superior patient care is noticed and appreciated,” Bea said.
After the photos were posted on NorthBay Healthcare’s Facebook page, they were liked, shared and commented on by more than 5,000 readers. “People like a good story with a happy ending,” noted Robin Miller, social media and online specialist for NorthBay Healthcare.
