Aurora Ald. Juany Garza, Ward 2, and Aurora Ald. Scheketa Hart-Burns, Ward 7, toured Waterford Place in January and were impressed to learn about the programs and services provided to those impacted by cancer.
“This is fantastic,” Ald. Garza said. She is eager to spread the word to the residents of her ward about Waterford Place and the many programs available in English and Spanish. Noting that Waterford Place participants and staff understand what cancer patients go through, she said, “This is the support that people really need.”
“I’m knocked off my feet, I’m flabbergasted” Ald. Hart-Burns said following the tour. Having helped people close to her through their cancer journeys, she was impressed by the services provided, especially by the wig boutique and salon which assists those who have experienced hair loss due to cancer treatments. “I’m grateful to know this place is here,” she said. “I’m blown away by the love that you’ve put into this building.”
