Lung cancer information
Roberta “Bobbie” Malboeuf was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in June of 2014. Under the care of the Harrington staff, she fought a very courageous battle while never forgetting the important things in life, family and friends. Her door was always open, her ear always willing to listen, her heart would never judge. Bobbie was a giver to all, putting herself before others was her most precious gift. Although she lost her battle in December, the love in her heart lives and breathes in everyone and everything she touched. A truly beautiful soul, she nurtured every furred and feathered friend who happened upon her doorstep. Her tribute and wisdom to us all will forever be to love, listen, laugh, and cherish every moment of life.
Robert “Bobby” McGilvray was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer August of 2013. He was a loving and caring man, he would put the needs of others before his own needs. He would drop anything to help anyone that needed his help. Bobby always had a smile on his face and a great outlook on life. He gave the best advice and it always came from his heart. He lost his battle October 2013 and not a day will go by that his memory will not live on in the hearts of anyone that knew him.
