City of Hendersonville Walking Maps Available

New walking maps are now available for the City of Hendersonville courtesy of the Henderson County Partnership for Health program. The idea for the walking maps was made possible through a grant that the Partnership for Health received providing them the funds necessary to print the maps. Separate maps are available so that walkers may carry them along on their walks.  Besides a map of the walk route, other information provided includes the distance, the difficulty, the highlights, and any cautions about the route.

[caption id="attachment_420" align="aligncenter" width="420" caption="Kristy Capps & Rhonda Fain provide tours of the new cancer resource room at the recent Doctor's Day reception."][/caption] The cancer resource room has moved to the Kayden Center to provide more convenient access to the patients of the Pardee Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center. The move also provides a much larger space. The resource room was previously housed at the Pardee Health Education Center in the Blue Ridge Mall. The cancer resource room allows women undergoing cancer treatment to find the right wig, prosthesis, turban, scarf, mastectomy bra, clothing or hat at no charge. The room is provided in cooperation with the American Cancer Society. Congratulations to Kristy Capps and Melanie Tecklenburgh for creating such a warm, beautiful space for our female cancer patients.
