The photograph, Storm Watch (left) taken by Pam Ziehler of Acton Street, was one of several donated to the Emerson Hospital Oncology Department which was recently renovated and had no pictures on the wall. This photograph, one of her South Dakota Summer series that had been on display at the Gleason Public Library, was given in thanks for the care her son received to cure his cancer after three sessions of chemotherapy. "I felt it was the least I could do for taking care of my son, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law and two best friends, all who had some form of cancer," said Ziehler. She hopes that an anxious patient, waiting to be seen, will receive comfort in viewing her photographs.
