Some of them you get really attached to like FGH 3B unit secretary Delores Theresa Ruth Nebraski — who made a big impact on the 3B unit and who passed away from cancer.
“She told me one time, ‘You know I don’t have a problem dying from this cancer. I just don’t want people to forget me.’ I said, ‘Well, we won’t forget you.’ So we put a thing in her name in this book,” Offutt said.
It’s even more personal to the 3B unit on the June 9th Relay for Life because many of the people on the survivors’ walk are their patients.
“When they do the first walk at Relay,” Offutt said. “You just all cry because all the survivors walk the first lap, and you clap and you cry. It’s ... because we know them.”
The cookbooks are $11 each and available at the FGH gift shop or in the front office.
“If anyone sees them, they are going,” she said. “This one girl said they sold in no time at all, just seeing them. It’s just getting the word out to people.”
