Top 3 life goals

  1. To get my master’s in nursing and work with pediatric cancer patients.
  2. Have a Family.
  3. Travel the world.

Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience.
I think I have learned that life is precious and it should not be taken for granted.  My grandfather died 9 months after being diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Watching him suffer reminded me how fortunate I was and how things could have been so different.  I want to give back to others the way the nurses and staff gave to me and my family and offered help, patience, understanding, and love.

 

Words to live by.
