CMC Team Plans Activities for Family During Winter Season
CMC Team Gathers Activity Passes for Family Driving Long-Distance for Medical Treatment
Every two weeks a local family who lives over an hour away drive to Missoula so their daughter can receive chemo treatments at Community Medical Center (CMC). Dr. Lauren Wilson, pediatric hospitalist, and Maria Gurreri, pediatric infusion nurse, discovered that the father and their 5-year-old daughter typically go to parks or hang out in the car while the younger sister receives chemo.
Once winter hit, they could no longer visit the local parks and activities were limited, so the CMC team came up with a plan to get season passes to spectrUM Discovery Area, Carousel for Missoula, Missoula Insectarium, Children’s Museum Missoula and Big Dipper Ice Cream donated, so the family could participate in fun activities while they were in town.
