National Nursing Week 2012

Message from Dr. Dhali Dhaliwal, President & CEO, CancerCare Manitoba
Ruth Loewen, Sue Bates Joint Chief Nursing Officer

Congratulations to all our nurses at CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB), during National Nursing Week 2012. This week of recognition is well deserved, and we offer thanks on behalf of CCMB's executive, the Board, and all other staff, for your hard work and commitment to our patients.

Thousands of Manitobans come through our doors each year, and regularly attest to the exemplary professional care you provide. Just this past Friday, I received a letter from a former patient who thanked you, saying…

"Nursing is a field that demands much of those who pursue it… long hours, and the strain of working with ill and stressed people on a daily basis can make it a very difficult challenge. The nurses of CCMB are a unique group of people whose extraordinary technical skills, coupled with compassion, empathy and respect, lends them to playing a pivotal role in one?s cancer journey."

We join this patient, and the many others and their families, who appreciate your efforts, resilience and compassion.

Thank you.
