Archbishop Emeritus Henry J. Mansell blesses a garden in the second floor waiting area of the St. Francis/Mount Sinai Regional Cancer Center in Hartford Nov. 1.
The garden is in memory of Nina Griswold Giorgio, a friend of St. Francis Care and a member of the St. Francis Auxiliary, who died of cancer in March.

Dadlez, St. Francis’ president and CEO; and registered nurse Kathleen Noone, director of the Oncology Service Line.
Guests not shown included Molly Giorgio and Carla Giorgio, daughters of the late Mrs. Giorgio. A portion of the tribute gifts received in memory of Mrs. Giorgio helped make the garden possible. (Photo submitted)
