An Apple a Day
Outpatient Cancer Infusion Center patients enjoy iPads, more
Patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation therapy at St. Anthony’s Cancer Care Center now have the option of retreating into soothing music or meditation podcasts, movies, Internet browsing or online games, thanks to a gift from St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation. The Outpatient Infusion Center now is equipped with four televisions, three iPads and two iPods for its patients. The equipment was purchased with funds contributed by donors to St. Anthony’s Cancer Care Fund.
“The patients receiving chemo are in the chairs receiving an infusion for up to eight hours at a time,” said Michael Foley, Development Officer for St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation. “Giving them the option of watching TV, surfing the net, streaming a movie or playing Angry Birds allows them the chance to relax and take their minds off the treatment. Hopefully, the devices will make their experience more pleasant.”
