I'm writing this letter to let others know about the outstanding oncology center at Delta County Memorial Hospital. The treatment at the center is patient centered. Everyone there from the physicians, to nurses, to receptionists, to the volunteers, try to ensure the patient is welcomed, comfortable and their privacy is respected. Before, during and after treatment, our center provides support. Classes are available in yoga, journaling and other subjects. There is even a class on makeup and how that can make one feel better! The center also offers support groups for those who have experienced cancer.
I chose to stay close to home for treatment and I'm so glad I did. My experience was so positive. I just want to say "thanks" to all who work at the oncology center. So ... thanks and keep up the good work.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
