Fort Smith Radiation Oncology’s April Patient Spotlight is Gwendolyn Crutchfield of Sallisaw, Oklahoma. Ms. Crutchfield grew up in Kansas and has lived in Sallisaw for the past 15 to 20 years. She has two grown daughters and nine grandchildren, three of which live with her. She spends her spare time having cookouts and pool parties with her grandkids and she has a love of shopping! She is very excited to be sending her 19 year old grandchild off to college in the fall.
Ms. Crutchfield was diagnosed with cancer during a yearly checkup. Her treatment recommendation was surgery and radiation therapy. Dr. Choo of Tulsa, OK, performed her surgery and she is completing her radiation treatments here at FSRO. It has been a pleasure getting to know Ms. Crutchfield and we are proud to have her as our April Patient Spotlight.
On Thursday, April 19th, Dr. Kris Gast and the staff of Fort Smith Radiation Oncology were treated with a visit by the first graders of Morrison Elementary. The students sang a thank you song to the staff and presented Dr. Gast with a plant as a show of their appreciation for the partnership between Fort Smith Radiation Oncology and Morrison Elementary. After the song, the students gave hugs and enjoyed eating cookies while visiting our bird aviary.
Dr. Kris Gast hosted the annual Easter Egg Hunt for the staff of FSRO. Dr. Gast stuffed over 40 eggs and Megan and Sydney, daughters of Terri and Becky Staton, hid the eggs outside on the grounds of our new office space. Once hidden, the race was on for the employees to find the hidden treasures! Megan and Sydney were quite sneaky and eggs were found in car tail pipes, in drainage pipes, and even buried in fresh potting soil!! And as no surprise, Shea and Brandon both found a $100 egg.
