About Cate Conroy

The daughter of an ovarian cancer survivor, Cate Conroy loves working at GiveForward, a place that allows her to help families who are in the same place she was a few years ago. Now, when she’s not tweeting, blogging or marketing on behalf of GiveForward, she can be found training for her next marathon with her dog, Teddy, or attempting to bake a new gluten-free treat (which she then forces everyone in the GiveForward office to taste-test).

Nurse Emily

The hospice nurse

Working long hours, taking care of patients and handling paperwork are all part of a normal day for a nurse. Add a round of chemotherapy at the end of your shift, and you have some idea of what Emily Schmidt faces every day.
