CAS-hh also receives resident's praise

Dear editor, Re: Marsha Vettese's Jan. 27 letter (Cancer patient praises CAS-hh). After reading Marsha's letter I was compelled to also write in praise, and with deepest gratitude, to everyone associated with Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills (CAS-hh). As a new resident (Sept. 2005) I learned I had cancer in November 2005. Sheer terror gripped me, not only with the diagnosis, but the fact my doctors were in Toronto and therefore I knew I would be referred to hospitals there. In a panic I checked out the Halton Hills Yellow Pages looking for anyone-- organizations, groups, etc.-- because I sure needed help in a big way. The best call I ever could have made was to CAS-hh. Through this one call I learned of their many services. I then met and spoke to other cancer survivors and received phone numbers so I had contacts when I needed to talk about my fears and anxiety. I had a support system at my fingertips. I cannot express strongly enough my gratitude for the wonderful volunteer drivers (especially Louise) at CAShh. They drove me back and forth to the different hospitals for numerous procedures and appointments and were always on time, cheerful and kept the conversation light to try and help keep my mind from dwelling on what was otherwise a terrifying experience. Hopefully you will never need to make the call I had to, but should you, rest assured you could not be in better hands. You will never meet a more caring and compassionate group of people.
