Cancer fund donates infusion center chairs

The Zachary Johnson Kids with Cancer Fund made a gift of $14,500 to purchase five new chairs for Riverwood Healthcare Center’s infusion center. The new chairs are enhanced recliners with added comfort for patients and an attached tray to hold personal items.

When the cancer fund was started nearly 23 years ago, the Johnson family made their first gift to Riverwood for a new chair for patients getting chemotherapy or other infusion treatments.

“Making the journey with cancer easier for patients and families is a very precious gift,” says Katie Nelson, Riverwood Foundation director. “We extend a special thank you to The Office Shop for their commitment to the Zach Johnson Kids with Cancer Fund with Riverwood Foundation.”
