Within the past year Mankato lost two, Joyce Bradrick and Bar- bara Alcorn, to cancer. April 7, 1990 Bradrick was diagnosed with lung cancer with brain metasis. For months the family hoped for a misdiagnosis and a cure. As time passed her condition worsened and she needed more care. Bradrick's daughter, Leslie, a registered nurse,was visiting with her boss at an Olathe hospi- tal, who talked aboutHospice and the support they give. At this time the Heartland Hospice Chapter was in the in- fancy stages and not much was offeredin Jewell County for what Bradrick needed. Leslie felt a loved one should be able to die with dignity and yet have the care and love and the family could have support. She talked it over with her family, father, Jack, sister, Lynette, and brother, Todd. Jack, Todd and Todd's wife, Gaye, went to work to find out what needed to be done. Labor Day Monday, 1991 Bar- bara Alcorn discovered a lump under her arm. Thinking it was arthritis and she had just stirred it up by playing golf she went back to see her doctor and was diag- nosed with cancer. Within the six months before she had had x- rays, blood tests, the works and was given a clean bill of health. As the days went by Hooley, Barb's husband, went to visit Jack and they decided to work together to get the Hospice Room going. Jack, Todd and Freddie Murphy, who stayed with Joyce many days, went to the hospital board about making a hospital room into a Hospice Room. It was approved. The Bradrick family redeco- rated the room. Jack and son-in- law, Hershel, painted the walls and put the stucco on the ceiling. Leslie and Jodi File, Joyce's sis- ter, papered the walls and Mrs. Murphy made the drapes. The room is completed now. Crissie Dewey was the first Hos- pice patient to use the room. The room is equipped with items purchased through memo- rials and donations. In the room are a divan and a Union Hall passing out Bibles 'mid,telling the messageCmpha  ' sizCng John 3:16.
