Joy was shared in abundance at the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center on the campus of UH St. John Medical Center just a few days before Christmas last month when patients and families were treated to an evening of celebration, dinner, gifts and more, including a visit from Santa and the UH Chorus.
The evening was made possible by a collaboration between the Seidman staff and Constant Aviation, a Cleveland company located near the airport that specializes in airframe maintenance, engine repair maintenance, major repairs, avionics, interior refurbishment and modification, parts distribution, accessory and composite services. It is one of the fastest growing maintenance, repair and overhaul companies in the country.
Jack DiCello, Vice President Constant Aviation, explained that the outreach was an effort by the company and its employees to make a difference in the community beyond business.
Patients who need cancer treatment are often challenged on many fronts, from the physical demands of recovery to the financial realities of maintaining a household while being unable to work.
The partnership between Constant Aviation and UH Seidman Cancer Center ensured that the patients at the UH SJMC campus had a Christmas. Truly, a night of joy!
