I am sending so much love your way. This post is making me cry; I wish I could reach out and give you a hug.
I'm a new graduate nurse, and I unexpectantly have an interview in Oncology on Monday. It seems fitting - my dad is currently battling Stage 3 colon cancer and, after both chemo and radiation tx, he will be having surgery in mid-May. It would be wonderful to be able to give him the gift that I will be an Oncology nurse prior to his surgery. Afterwards, he has four months of chemo to face, and being able to reassure/help/support him in his time of need would be amazing.
I'm not sure what the outcome of this interview on Monday will be, but I'm incredibly hopeful.
