 Dear Friends,

 

      A new patient tradition has been started in the Radiation/Oncology Dept. at the Stanford School of Medicine this year. My Blue Dots has partnered with them to honor all those who have completed their radiation treatments by giving them a My Blue Dots pin. These pins stand for healing, hope, and health and put a period at the end of that chapter in their lives.

     These pins are worn by the doctors and therapists to show that they are all a team working together for the well being of their patients.

     Our mission is to not only supports cancer research but also the cancer warriors thus we are delighted to be able to support those warriors by the gift of this pin to them and all the other cancer warriors. I know I wear mine each day.  

 

           Until Next Time... 
                              
Sue

My Blue Dot Pins

 

A new tradition has been started at Stanford

 

In the Radiation/Oncology Department this year.

 

My Blue Dots has partnered with them

 

To make our support of them very clear...

 

 

 

By giving My Blue Dot pins to each patient

 

After radiation they have gone through.

 

A symbol that says "We honor you,

 

And we're standing there beside you."

 

 

 

The doctors and therapists all wear these pins

 

To show they all stand as one.

 

They represent

 

Hope for the future,

 

Healing of the person

 

And good Health

 

When these treatments are done.

 

 

 

So these Blue Dot Pins many now wear

 

To honor what they have been through.

 

 Others have gone through this same challenge

 

So this pin is to honor them too.

Before you go through radiation for cancer, you are tattooed with blue dots. These blue dots mark where the radiation beams go into 
your body to kill the cancer.
