Brighter Days Ahead Foundation invites you to attend the First Annual Celebration of Life Banquet in memory of Anne Richardson on Tuesday April 20th at 6:30pm.
"Brighter Days Ahead has come together with one mission: to offer hope and comfort to every person who enters Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center for Cancer Treatment. This mission has inspired my family and me because my mother, Anne Richardson, was diagnosed with lung cancer.
Many of you have been touched by this terrible disease. Your spouse, parents, children, friends, co-workers, or even you may come face-to-face with cancer. For those of you who are on or have been on the journey my mother and I traveled, you know how this disease affects not only the person dealing with cancer but everyone in the family. My whole world changed in an instant. We have been so blessed to have Pattie A. clay Regional Medical Center in Richmond, KY. The convenience of being close to home was so precious to us. Even though we are fortunate to have the resources available to use here locally, we still need to improve our facilities and continue to offer patients and families the quality care and service possible.
We ask you to join us in a celebration of the lives of those who come for treatment at Pattie A. Clay as we walk hand-in-hand with family members and care givers to provide comfort and hope for "Brighter Days Ahead."
Our immediate goals are to provide the following:
-An awning for the Richmond Oncology Center entrance
-A warm, bright, colorful head covering for each patient
-A journal in which each patient can write questions and share the journey on which a specific treatment takes him or her
-Wall-mounted televisions with DVD players for private treatment rooms
-Portable DVD players with headphones
-A library of quality movies for the DVD players
-A brochure filled with helpful information for anyone new to cancer treatment
I hope you will join us on this journey. There will be MANY balloons at our celebration. You may help our cause by purchasing a Mylar balloon for $6 to celebrate a loved one's life to be added to the balloon banquet. You will also have the opportunity to purchase or give at the banquet toward some of the items that are on our immediate goal list.
Thank you and I hope to see you at the celebration!"
