Cornwall – Thanks to a local artist, patients attending the new Cornwall Hospital Chemotherapy Unit can enjoy a beautiful piece of artwork.
Jason Sauve, of Cornwall, worked in nursing for several years before transitioning to a full time artist. When asked what the inspiration was for his “tree of hope”, he explained that it symbolizes inspiration and strength. “I wanted to portray a warm bright healing sense. To see something bright and colourful can literally shift a person’s day!” affirms Jason. “What a lovely addition to our Chemotherapy Unit. We hope it does brighten the day of those visiting the unit, for years to come,” declares Jeanette Despatie, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cornwall Hospital.
The Chemotherapy unit at Cornwall Hospital has begun treating patients with genitourinary (which affect the urinary tract) and lung cancers and with experience and proficiency the services will expand to other cancer types.
