When Chesapeake Regional Healthcare CEO Reese Jackson dropped into Whole-ly Rollers Bakery for one of their delicious homemade cinnamon buns, he was warmly welcomed by bakery owner Brenda Hartford and bakery marketing director Linda Thompson. These two ladies have a special bond with Chesapeake Regional: their beloved sister Robbin Anderson, who passed in May after a brave seven-year battle with cancer, received her treatments at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center and Virginia Oncology Associates.
"When Robin was going there, she told me several times just how nice the staff treated her," Linda says. "They were compassionate. She had tears in her eyes telling me that she really appreciated the staff at Chesapeake Regional hospital."
To show their heartfelt appreciation, the sisters recently donated 300 freshly baked, homemade cinnamon rolls to Chesapeake Regional’s dedicated medical professionals.
