    “I am not throwing away my shot…” -Hamilton

    It is no strange thing to visitors of this Website the horror stories of nursing school. My experience was more difficult than others. Rising at 4:00 AM to drive an hour or more clinicals, being considered a leader and President of the Health Occupation Students of America, I was required to set an example.

    Toward the end of my first year, I began to be consistently tired no matter how much sleep I managed to get. My blood pressure was acting up – and did I mention the neck distention that had been there about two years? A good doctor noticed and referred me to an endocrinologist for my thyroid.

    The doctor noticed there was a nodule or growth; an immediate fine – needle aspiration happened. I was conplimented on how still I was able to remain.

    A week later; the diagnoses. Cancer. At a time when I was supposed to be enjoying my break and preparing for my next year; I was planning a funeral and scheduling procedures and preparing for a period of isolation following a heavy dose of radiation.

    The surgery was successful. The diet was worse. The radiation was – tolerable. On July 18th of 2015 I was declared cancer free by my surgeon and the very day after my isolation was over I was back in nursing school and ready to lead again.

    I am sure this story won’t win, as I imagine many others whi have far more inspiring storiea than myself. But I hope it will be an inspiration to others and I share it in honor of all cancer survivors.

    I’ve been a nurse for 39 years now. I cut my teeth on DRG’s…I have cared for all on the life continuum, from 1 lb 10 oz preemies all the way to 100 year old fiercely independent senior citizens…life comes full circle, but through it all, remember that your support system, your “brothers and sisters” in the field are the ones that will truly understand the joys and heartaches that come with being a nurse…cherish each other in the new year and for all the years to come.
