Five Reasons to Celebrate, Five Reasons to Give
Eleanor Adams visited the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation on July 15 to honour a very important milestone.
Just recently, she celebrated her five-year anniversary of being cancer free, which inspired her to give back to the hospital where her journey first started.
Eleanor and her husband moved to the Valley in 2013. Following a routine mammogram at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in 2015, she received the news that she had early stage breast cancer.
She underwent a mastectomy, followed by another shortly after. The procedures were a success and Eleanor was declared cancer free.
Eleanor prides her early detection at SFMH, along with the knowledgeable staff here at St. Francis, with her quick recovery. She recently made a donation to the Foundation, recognizing every year she has been cancer free.
“I am proud of our little hospital,” she said.
Eleanor’s generous gift will go towards local healthcare including the purchase of critical medical equipment for our hospital.
