Livestrong Day

Today is Livestrong Day -- a day recognized around the world to bring awareness of the global cancer crisis. It marks the 14th anniversary of Lance Armstrong’s testicular cancer diagnosis.

While it is appropriate to think about people living with cancer and their families today, I'm also thinking about the important work of oncology nurses. I remember the fantastic nurses who helped my sister Karen years ago when she struggled with leukemia.
