The Chaffin family wants to thank the oncology department at H. B. Magruder Hospital for all the kindness, support, care and love they gave to Joni, and also for putting up with her let's say "outgoing personality". Dr. Prithvirag, Dr. Gudena, Laura, Caitlyn, Amanda, Heather and Monica, you are the best! Thanks to the radiology department for their kindness, prayers, love and support. Lori works with a great group of people
