I have been an oncology nurse for twenty plus years. I also have experience in inpatient hospice care. I am a certified end of life counselor and have been at the bedside of hundreds of patients. I am also a Stephen minister, presently not active as our church does not have a program at this time. I am a breast cancer survivor times two and frequently provide support to friends and neighbors with cancer. Throughout my long nursing career (42 years!) I have done lots of teaching from one on one to very large groups at national meetings.
