It is a privilege to share the intimacies of patients’ lives with them. I enjoy getting to know what is important to them, and how I can help—whether it’s finding something to laugh at, explaining something they don’t understand or managing their symptoms. Helping patients and their families navigate the world of cancer motivates me to stay current with the latest information in the field. It is amazing how far cancer treatments have come in the 20 years I’ve been a nurse. We do hard work in the Cancer Center, and it is a powerful shared experience. We have laughed and cried together, and I have enormous respect for each one of my coworkers and the jobs they do.
