In an effort to revamp the chemotherapy rooms in their entirety, Nancy reached out to twenty local interior designers for their professional aid. Within three days, six designers had reacted enthusiastically, volunteering their time and creative efforts for the first RTR4C Project. Since then, talented teams of room revamping designers have been transforming bland spaces into vibrant, warm and colorful environments that evoke positive vibes into the dreary circumstances often experienced in these treatment rooms. These rooms have been completed and are highlighted on our website.
FundRaiser: Because of our wonderful volunteers, donors, sponsors and friends, we are proud to announce we have transformed 12 facilities since our beginnings in 2011, and impact over 753,000 patient visits per year.
Our RTR4C Board will be hosting a house party to bring those interested in being involved together. We are requesting a $50 donation per person that will go towards our next public hospital. We are hoping to create auxiliary chapters in the Bay Area. If you would l like to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for site location.

Our SF General Hospital Project was amazing as was our Dedication Ceremony on Friday, November 15th.
We had over 90 volunteers throughout the weekend, a record for RTR4C. And, they were from all walks of life which makes it so special. Our project was dedicated to Nicholas Sommerfield who in 2003 at age six, was hit in a cross walk. He died at SF General and his father spent many days there recovering from major injuries to his body, mind and spirit. His father, brother Colin (now 13)and step brother Aiden (4) contributed to the underwater wonderland mural; the beach was always special to Nicholas.The Sommerfield Family is forever grateful and father and son found true healing in the hands-on painting of the mural in Nicky’s Room (the waiting room).
I know the hospital staff is happy with the results as the patients are able to find a tiny bit of hope and beauty in each room. We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to present San Francisco General Hospital with the transformation of the Chemotherapy Unit on 4C and look forward to rocking more rooms in the coming year.
