nurses are angels

My boss was diagnosed with lung cancer back in January. She is one of the most remarkable women I know, and someone I respect and admire deeply. She is being treated at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, and a little bit of her story appears in the Spring 2007 edition [pdf] of the medical center's magazine, which is called Forum.

Page 17, the bit about Joan, is the page blogged here. (Click it to enlarge.)

Nurses are angels. Irving, the young man I knew through Random Acts who succumbed to cancer a while back had a whole bevy of angels at Children's Hospital.

If you know someone with cancer and you want to help, donate blood and in particular blood platelets. The main use for them is for cancer patients undergoing chemo.
