RTR4C was contacted in February of 2012 by the oncology nurse navigator for a small rural hospital in Mammoth, California. She stated that the chemotherapy patients at Mammoth are generally seen by oncologists at larger hospitals and cancer centers in surrounding “big” cities; however, they are able to receive their treatments here in Mammoth Lakes, saving them a lot of travel time and expense. She had graciously been given the task to assist in the remodel of the chemo infusion room and came upon our website.
Her small community raises money each year for their local cancer patients and the hospital had set aside $6500 for the remodel of this room. The room used to be a part of the radiology department and had a cold radiology feel to it.
Around the same time, we had received an email from Southern California Designer, Nicole Cavanaugh who was interested in “rocking a room” for chemo. It took a little over a year but we got it done. Nicole came to the aid of Mammoth Hospital with a full crew and all needed supplies to create a healing, loving space with a FIREPLACE!
Mammoth Hospital opens their doors to all that need chemotherapy. It went from drab and average to fabulous, amazing, cozy and warm.
