Like all the posts I’ve written for the Cancer Talk blog, this post starts with my name, and then three important words: Ovarian Cancer Survivor. What makes me a survivor? The answer seems obvious. Three and a half years after being diagnosed with Stage IIc ovarian cancer, I am still alive.
Cancer can change your whole life. Suddenly, everything is different – your relationships, your outlook on life, your emotions, your daily routine.
I’ve always embraced a more casual style of nursing; my patients have always felt more like friends and family than strangers. I enjoy finding common ground and getting to know their family members.
