Patients at Denver Health's Cancer Care Services
blood infusion center received gifts of warmth and comfort Wednesday during their chemotherapy treatments. The port-friendly ponchos (ponchos designed to be easily worn around ports, which are nickel or quarter-sized implants that act like artificial veins for tubes or catheters to administer IV medication and fluids) are handmade by Barbara Goldsby, Co-founder of Three Sisters Non-Profit
in Littleton. Goldsby delivers them every month to patients like Lazara Nevarez, pictured here.
Employees also appreciate the donations.
"It makes our patients feel special," said Elizabeth Bibiloni Velazquez, a Health Education Specialist with the Cancer Resource Center at Denver Health.
The non-profit organization plans to donate more comfort items to the center on an ongoing basis.
