“When fighting cancer, it is not always the odds or success rates. It’s about the will of a human being whose strength to overcome cannot be measured on paper.” -Ann, The Lymphoma Club
"A year and a half ago Chester Hospital became our second home. Our mom had cancer and our journey began. We could not have done it without the help of so many people. Everyone has been so kind and helpful. There are so many people involved, it's hard to list them all. So when you hear the name Gertrude Kammermann, just know you are on that list. Thank you for your kindness, keeping us positive, making us laugh, and always being there for us. We love each of you and love Chester Hospital" - Family of Gertrude Kammermann
"The nurses in the Infusion Department are wonderful! Even when they are really busy, they still make you feel special. On 'bad days,' they keep your spirts up! Thank you to Carla, Carrie Jo, Debbie, Michelle, Amy, Janet, and Dr. Justin Floyd." - Lynn Rickenberg
Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with an antineoplastic drug or with a combination of such drugs into a standardized treatment regimen. Certain chemotherapy agents also have a role in the treatment of other conditions, including ankylosing spondylitis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma. The most common chemotherapy agents act by killing cells that divide rapidly, one of the main properties of most cancer cells. This means that chemotherapy also harms cells that divide rapidly under normal circumstances: cells in the bone marrow, digestive tract, and hair follicles. This results in the most common side-effects of chemotherapy: myelosuppression (decreased production of blood cells, hence also immunosuppression), mucositis (inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract), and alopecia (hair loss).

Bell of Hope Donated By Gielow Family
The chemotherapy and infusion department at Memorial Hospital in Chester has a new addition to their wall of remembrance. A "bell of hope", donated by the Gielow family in loving memory of Marvin A. Gielow now graces the entry wall. The inscription reads, "Ring this bell three times well to celebrate this day. This course is run, my treatment done, now I am on my way." As patients finish their final treatment they will have the honor of ringing the bell to commemorate the completion of their battle.
Marvin was a long-time patient of the infusion department. He was a friend and inspiration to both staff and patients of the department. He finished his battle on August 4th, 2017. "This bell of hope will serve as a reminder of Marvin and inspiration to those who continue to fight," stated the staff.
