Help Cheer on Janice Raus!


Pt-4S-8-2014-2Meet Janice Raus, who celebrated her 42nd birthday yesterday. In her role as director of ESM Youth Sports – Junior Sapphires, Jan helps youngsters become teammates on cheering squads for many of the East Syracuse Minoa sports teams.


Yet now Jan needs cheers of her own, as she's been a patient on 4 South, our oncology unit, since late July. That's when she was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Cheers are exactly what the nurses and staff gave Jan to help mark her special day.


"Imagine sleeping and waking up to a room fully decked out in all sorts of birthday decorations, from signs to balloons," said Jan. "One of the nurses even baked a cake for me, and another, a night shift nurse, painted my toenails, as she's done each week, a bright, cheerful color. The Crouse team has been wonderful to me and my family — we're so appreciative!"


Thanks to the 4 South team for going the extra mile for our patients. Crouse is committed to exceeding our patients' expectations — and this is one example of how our employees do that each and every day.


And thanks to Janice for allowing us to share this story... happy birthday to one of the best cheer leaders in Central New York, as evidenced by the card below created by members of the Junior Sapphires!
