Hi Jennifer! Thank you for the reply, we really appreciate it.
This is a very small cancer center. I loved the whole staff there. They helped me through a hard time and even let me record my vlog. I think this would be awesome!
Thanks Jennifer!!! Can you send us a link to your vlog? We’d love to see it.
Rutgers cancer institute of New Jersey!! They are the best! Dr Deborah Toppmeyer and her team are awesome and helped me to beat breast cancer while I was pregnant!!!
Aimee! We sure hope that your treatment went well, especially at such a special time in your life. We have added the center to our list!!!!
Cleveland Clinic, Wooster , OH Oncology Infusion Center
. This is my second time through (yes, now Stage 4) and everyone there is
extended family…caring, understanding, compassionate–even on my bad days!
Thank you for the opportunity to express my gratitude for them!
and, I just have to say, as a
former dancer, I LOVE the Tutu Project! Thanks for making me smile everyday!
Paula, we are so happy that you have found a “family” to help you through this, ESPECIALLY on the BAD DAYS! And we are even happier to know that we are a part of your journey in some small positive way. xoxo Bob & Linda
I would love for the Porter Cancer Care Center in Denver, CO to receive a calendar . The are such caring people, they made my journey a better one for their involvement.
I’d love the cancer center at Valley Hospital, in the Luckow Pavillion in Paramus, NJ to receive one. Although I did not receive my treatment there, I had to go to them every Monday for 6 months to have my PICC line flushed and new sterile dressings. It didn’t matter that I wasn’t receiving my treatment there, they still watched out for me and always asked how I was doing. They made me feel welcome and even offered suggestions/tips on dealing with the side effects of my chemo. It always made me laugh when they brought over their Computer On Wheels, COW. They named their computers, Elsie, Bessie, etc. names you’d think of with cows. Wonderful nurses with upbeat attitudes!
I had my radiation treatments after my breast cancer surgery at Alexian Brothers Cancer Institute in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. I went in full of fear and lots of questions and I came out with hope and a new group of supporters. No one rushed through ANYTHING with me. I felt compassion and well cared for. I would recommend them to anyone who needs radiation care.

Esiste in Italia, precisamente a Genova, un polo di eccellenza nella cura del cancro al seno: si chiama IST e fa parte dell’ospedale San Martino (sempre a Genova) dove mia madre è stata operata e mastectomizzata ma dopo anni sta benissimo e dove ogni 6 mesi ha le visite di controllo. Se è salva e sta bene è grazie a loro! ❤️

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in Fall 2013. She scheduled surgery the same day she buried a friend who battled breast cancer for twenty years. After a double mastectomy, she met with an oncologist who gave no hope for successful treatment even though her cancer was stage 2B. We were devastated. Later that week and while on my commute to work, I was listening to a wnpr. The discussion was centered on an oncologist’s success with minimizing chemotherapy side effects. They were interviewing this doctor, Dr. Jame Abraham. At the end of the segment, Dr. Abraham’s credentials were given. His cancer focus was my mom’s exact diagnosis. Days later and seven hours away from home, we were sitting at WVU talking to Dr. Abraham. He was as positive and reassuring as the previous oncologist was hopeless. It is 2015, my mom is cancer free. Dr. Abraham has since taken a position with the Cleveland Clinic, but WVU and its staff will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Please pick the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, CA.
I had the honor of meeting Bob and Linda at the 2014 POWER Symposium and have been following your beautiful pictures/posts/updates since! I would love to share your calendars with our cancer center
University of Arizona Cancer Center- awesome doctors, compassionate and very supportive!
They offer so much to so many people all free of charge. They have a great slogan “The place to start when you don’t know where to begin.”
I had first gone somewhere else….my last visit at that location, I sat in my car crying and thinking that I needed to make plans for when I died. My first visit to the UW Breast Cancer Center I knew I was going to be okay. They are amazing!

I am nominating the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center in Savannah, Tennessee. Funding for its development was raised by the Darryl Worley Foundation as a way to give back to the community. Savannah is in rural west Tennessee where cancer patients would historically have to travel out of town to find treatment. Because of Darryl’s hard work and generosity, patients can get the treatment they need locally and not have to spend time and expense traveling out of town.

Thanks for writing us Donna, As we have seen in our research, cancer centers are not readily available to a lot of people, and travelling becomes part of their treatment. Glad to hear Tennessee has another option and will be sure to add it to our list!

I have worked for Dr. Marc Hirsh for 15 years. People always ask me if I find it hard to work with patients with cancer. I always tell them that the atmosphere in our infusion room is one of hope. Patients share their stories with each other and it is like a party every day here! We believe laughter is the best medicine and our chemo room is full of laughter every day! Please consider our infusion center for one of your Packages of Love. Thanks so much for all you do
I would like to nominate NY Oncology Hematology in Troy, NY to receive calendars. I have been battling breast cancer since 1999 diagnosed at 40 years old. I was treated by a wonderful oncologist at the Latham office of this practice, Dr. Janet Gargalio until she retired when I was rediagnosed on the other side in 2009. I was then recommended by her to see Dr. Regina Resta in their Troy facility. She has been wonderful, caring as well as all the nurses and staff there because I was diagnosed at the end of 2012 with metastic breast cancer in my liver. It didn’t look good at the time, but Dr. Resta was determined to find something that would work for me and she did because I just celebrated my 57th birthday this week, 2 1/2 years later. I am stable, still get meds every 3 weeks so I see their wonderful medical team all the time. They have given me hope and a quality of life which needs to be filled with laughter and happiness.
They are located at:
