If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be an oncology nurse. Each day I would be doing what I have dedicated my life to doing–helping others. Even though there is no cure for cancer, I could give support, kindness, comfort, joy, laughter and a smile to each patient that is fighting that horrible disease. I could help make their day, or that moment as I hold their hand, to be just a little more tolerable. I will not be able to save the world, but I will be helping each patient to fight another day in what has become their “world”. I have already set my goals to make my dream a reality. I am approaching my final semester in nursing school. With my dedication, motivation and the knowledge I have gained, I will graduate and be a nurse in December 2014…and will begin my life-long journey of helping others.
