National Volunteer Week 2020 - Meet Rosemary Taylor
Volunteer Rosemary Taylor is celebrating 35 years at the San.
Patrina McLean, Manager of San Volunteers, says "Rosemary Taylor has served the San Hospital in a number of ways over her 35 years with us. Upon her application in 1984, Rosemary already had an extensive background in biochemistry. She obtained certificates in pastoral care, human nutrition and grief and attended more than 20 lectures and summits to further her knowledge in medicine, cancer and patient care.
Rosemary has founded six separate support groups during her time with Cancer Support Centre, as well as leading forums, fundraisers and events to support those with cancer and the research necessary to fight it. Rosemary has mentored other group leaders as they founded and led their groups through difficult situations and conversations.
She has always selflessly dedicated her time to educating and guiding families through the cancer journey. She has served as mentor and source of support to countless people as they deal with diagnosis, treatment and life after cancer, endlessly providing encouragement, honesty and humour for those in need.
Rosemary has worked tirelessly with others to bring all of her support groups online in response to the COVID-19 crisis, ensuring continuous service and connection for all group members and providing new support to regional area patients."
Thank you Rosemary!
