                                       A Celebration of Life: 10 Years of Hope and Healing

                                       The Parma Hospital Cancer Center's model of care was founded on early
                                       principles of Relationship-Based Care including belief in the idea that the
                                       relationship a person has with their caregiver has a significant impact on
                                       how well they recover. The design and environment of the center was also
                                       part of this more holistic approach. Natural lighting in the chemotherapy
                                       areas, relaxing interior design and calming focal points in the radiation
                                       oncology areas create a supportive and comfortable environment where
                                       people receive their treatment.

                                       The 10-year anniversary celebrates the cancer program's affiliation to the
                                       Taussig Cancer Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, ranked #1 in Ohio for
                                       cancer care by U.S. News & World Report. This clinical expertise
                                       combined with Parma Hospital’s excellent, personalized care and
                                       community focus brings high quality, compassionate treatment for the

Donors Help Seasons of Life Hospice Care for the Whole Person

The Hospice movement grew out of a compassionate
vision for support of meaningful life for individuals with
life-limiting illnesses and conditions. Central to Hospice is
care for the whole person and those close to them. The
Hospice model was the culmination of caring people
working together to bring high quality, compassionate,
holistic care that has proven very satisfactory for
thousands of families. This is certainly true for people in                                    Seasons of Life

with one Parma Hospital Auxiliary student volunteer.
