For church members visiting Holston Valley Medical Center's oncology floor, the phrase "love thy neighbor" has become much more than a Bible verse. It's a call to action.

"We want to be here for these families," said Barbara Tunnell, a member of Tri-Cities Baptist Church in Gray. "We bring meals to them. We talk to them, listen to them, cry with them. Whatever they need, we try to help provide."

Tri-Cities Baptist is one of many area churches which "adopts" the oncology floor in Wilcox Hall each year in a volunteer effort to ease the burden of patients and their families battling cancer.
