A benefactor of the George Bruce Nichols Patient Resource Center’s explains :
“Establishing and helping to sustain a library is one way I can give a little back to those who helped my husband and me during his battle with cancer. More importantly, I want to provide a peaceful and resourceful place where those fighting a similar battle can go to escape for a while, learn more about their diagnosis, read a book of poetry, look at beautiful artwork, seek a spiritual message or discover some humor and just simply laugh.” — Susan French
