RCH Introduces "All About Me" Program for Cancer Patients

     Rochelle Community Hospital is pleased to announce the formation of a new program with resources for cancer patients called “All About Me”. 

     All chemotherapy patients will be provided with a “care bag” containing items to comfort and assist them as they receive cancer treatment. The tote bag will include items such as a water bottle, blanket, lotion, lip balm, nail file, toothbrush, date organizer, nutrition information and more.  Funds donated to the Rochelle Community Hospital Foundation for breast cancer awareness will be used to purchase items for the care bags. 

     In recent years area businesses including Del Monte Foods, Xpressions Hair Salon and First National Bank have partnered with RCH to host breast cancer awareness events which made this program possible.

     A list of area resources is being compiled to aide patients in their journey to recovery and will be added to the hospital’s website.  This includes skin care, wigs, massages, etc.  If you’d like information about being added to the resource list, please contact Joy Miller, RCH Radiology Manager at 815-562-2181, ext. 1357.
