I am often asked why I am an oncology nurse.

And the answer is quite simple.

I see courage, strength and faith wrapped gently

around love and hope.

I hear inspirational stories that can instantly

bring a smile or a tear to my face.

I get to touch, hug, support and nurture.

I am able to make a difference in their lives as they do in mine.

For my patients and I are all connected to something 

much greater in this universe.

We all share similar but different stories.

We are all walking the “WALK” together, one day at a time.

My heart is filled with such gratitude in the work that I do.

I get “IT” and I get my patients.

You want to know why.

Because I too,  am a cancer survivor.
