I have been asked to talk to a class of nursing students about being a cancer patient. Now obviously, I do have my own take on this, but I also take this responsibility very seriously and want to help them as much as I can. What I need are stories and anecdotes of things that your nurses (ER, hospital, oncology, etc) did right. Negative stories are ok too, I just think the best way to reach a group of students is through the positive stuff. (Yeah, it’s the elementary teacher in me.)
For example, when I was at the breast care center having my biopsy done, the ultrasound tech from my mammogram the day before came to find me and show her support and then came back later after my diagnosis. Little stuff like that really made a difference for me.
