The CHI St. Alexius Health Williston Foundation is grateful for a generous donation from Thrivent Financial to the Leonard P. Nelson Cancer Center.

A $2000 donation from Thrivent was used to purchase a new infusion chair in the cancer center. These chairs are equipped with warning systems, massage, recharging ports, tablet mounts, and more providing a comfortable environment for those receiving treatment. Thrivent’s donation replaced an older chair in the isolation room.

“We are very thankful for each and every donation the foundation has received,” said Janna Lutz, Foundation Director. “When patients return for multiple or lengthy treatments, it is important to have a welcoming environment”

Taking the donation a step further, Thrivent Financial will be engaging their membership to help make the project even more impactful. “We wanted to reach patients more directly and came up with a plan to warm up the room with inspirational decoration and assist with care packages for the cancer patients” states Kristin Iverson, Financial Associate. “We expect the project to be completed fall of 2020.”

In 2019, the Leonard P. Nelson Cancer Center had 1971 patient visits for cancer treatment. With support of donors like Thrivent, there is no need to travel for cancer treatment. We are proud to offer cancer treatment close to home.
