Cancer patients are knot forgotten

Battling cancer really is the fight of one’s life, and the courage necessary for such a struggle deserves recognition. This year, that strength can be honored and memorialized through the CoxHealth Foundation’s Knot Forgotten Christmas trees. It’s the decorations that make these trees special: Each one is adorned with red, gold and silver “knots”  (bows) in honor or memory of cancer patients.

Every bow will have a card attached with the donor’s name, as well as the name of each honoree. If desired, one can also add a special message with words of encouragement. Trees are displayed at Cox Medical Center South in the north lobby and West Pavilion and in Hulston Cancer Center.

Bows are $5, $7 and $10 and can be purchased at Allenbrand Resource Center inside Hulston Cancer Center, in the north lobby and in the West Pavilion lobby of Cox Medical Center South or online at www.coxhealthfoundation.com. Proceeds benefit the Glauser Oncology Fund’s Patient Advocacy Program, which helps patients with free medications, travel assistance, nutritional supplements and supportive medical care in the hospital and at home.
