When I tell people that I work as an oncology nurse practitioner taking care of cancer patients on Nantucket I frequently get a response that sounds like “it must be really hard”. My usual answer is “it’s a great fit”. I get to connect with people in the most vulnerable time of their lives and make the most amazing heart connections. I get to wear my science “hat” and provide treatment as well as symptom support. I get to work with the most amazing colleagues whose caring abilities extend beyond your imagination.
Come join me and some of the best people you will every meet for an open water swim on July 23rd to benefit Cancer Services provided at Nantucket Cottage Hospital.
