I just wanted to share with some fellow nurses the story of my friend Laura, who died of CF in 2003.
In the last years of her life she sort of became a mini-celebrity. She had an audio diary on NPR, wrote a memoir and was featured in Glamour magazine.
You can listen to her audio diary here: http://www.radiodiaries.org/laura.html
And here is her memoir:
I was thinking of her today and re-listened to the audio diary. It helps me put my life in perspective after a bad day and reminds me why I became a nurse in the first place.
I hope you like it.
