Yesterday I was at The NYU Cancer Center to get my herceptin infusion which I get every three weeks. The whole day took longer than expected which bummed me out because it was so beautiful outside. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and the temperature was in the mid-70s. It was perfect but I was stuck inside.
And then it hit me. The best idea ever!
Every cancer center should have a rooftop infusion room! Like a rooftop bar! Think about it! Instead of being stuck in a dull, sometimes windowless room with no color and fluorescent lighting, you could be outside in a lounge chair, under and umbrella, enjoying the day! There could be a bar with coconut water, house made ginger ale (for those who aren’t feeling so hot), and a smoothie bar. There would be flowers and plants that fill the air with sweet aromas so that you won’t smell that disgusting stuff they flush your port with. It would be amazing! It would be perfect.
Here are some rooftop bars and gardens to inspire the kind people at NYU.
