Donor story: Staff helps Vancouver patients in more than one way

Three PeaceHealth cancer center caregivers pose outside of hospital

Debbie Clay, Rochelle White and Dr. Faisal Siddiqui not only work at the cancer center in Vancouver, they also donate to it

Caring is giving and giving is caring. Some people do both.
That’s what compassionate caregivers at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, Washington, do — they care, and they give their best — every time, every touch.
Debbie Clay, RN, nurse manager of the Inpatient Oncology Unit; Rochelle White, RN nurse manager of the Heimbigner Oncology Infusion Center; and Faisal Siddiqui, MD, radiation oncologist at PeaceHealth Southwest are not only caregivers, they are also passionate donors who support the PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center Foundation's Giving Strength Cancer Campaign.
The Giving Strength campaign is dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable cancer patients: those whose illness or frailty requires that they be hospitalized during cancer treatment. And to those who need financial assistance to support their basic needs while in treatment.
“My team of nurses gives strength and comfort every day to our chemotherapy patients. Being a donor to our cancer campaign is another way I can help our patients and I am proud to give back,” shares Rochelle. “It’s about giving patients our all.”
For Debbie, Rochelle and Dr. Siddiqui, giving patients their all means providing the best care and also dedicating their own personal resources to give strength to cancer patients in southwest Washington.
They are helping fulfill PeaceHealth’s Mission of caring for all who come through our doors.
