It’s a Wrap! 2015 A Year In Review for Nurse Advocate

What a difference a year makes! It is hard to believe that last year, at this time, I was fighting for my life after being diagnosed with a Central Nervous System Lymphoma. Today I am tumor free, and slowly recuperating from complications related to the chemotherapy.

My experience has taught me a great deal, but most of all it has shown me how hard it is to be a patient in the most sophisticated yet complex and fragmented healthcare system in the world. I found that sharing my experiences through writing has helped me to come to terms with my journey and to heal. As a result, my blog, Nurse Advocate was born.

As a clinical nurse, case manager, patient advocate, and cancer patient, I wanted to share my experiences with patients, caregivers, and all members of the healthcare team. I felt that by providing this information, readers could understand the challenges they face when thrust into the healthcare system and be empowered and educated by tips I feel I can provide.
