Wednesdays with Bergstrom

by Guest Blogger Gill Grant


Every Wednesday I volunteer in the chemo unit at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
I am a ten year survivor of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
I remember the fear on treatment days, and how hard it was to stay calm on such a long day of 100 percent stress. 
I volunteer to help ease the tension. My job is to listen, support and connect with patients and if I can bring a little levity and laughter …even better! 

One of my favourite ways to shake up the gloom is to arrive dressed in COLOUR. Lots of colour. Not a hint of black. Not even in my shoes. 
Bergstrom Originals are my go-to clothes every Wednesday. Christina’s clothes explode with colour and I swear, they change the mood. 
  
  

Three outfits.

Three quotes from patients.

Three Wednesdays with Bergstrom!

 

OUTFIT 1: 
"you are a ray of sunshine"

OUTFIT 2:
"purple is my favourite colour. You just made my day"

OUTFIT 3:
"it’s like my mother just arrived. She was Irish and her favourite colour was green"
