Sue McCollum talking about the My Blue Dots pin program
Radiation/ Oncology Department at the
Stanford University School of Medicine
This June I had the opportunity to share with the Stanford Radiation/Oncology Department the history of My Blue Dots. I also spoke about the My Blue Dots Pin Program that is now in place in the Radiation/Oncology Department at Stanford.
The Doctors, Nurse Coordinators, Radiation Therapists and Clinical Therapists were there to hear about the mission and vision of My Blue Dots. We also discussed the power of the symbol of the Standing With You pin that all of the staff wears to let the patients know they are not along on their journey but we are all standing with them.
We also discussed the My Blue Dots Gold Pin that is given to their patient to wear as a badge of honor. Then, with family and friends they Ring The Bell celebrating the end of their treatments.
We honor all of the staff as they not only have a job but have the opportunity to Make a Difference in another life during a challenging time.
Cancer will be cured someday....and that day is coming soon.
Until Next Time...
