I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in October 2008. After numerous complications and other health conditions, I am now in remission. I received my RN degree from Mercy School of Nursing in 2010. Since all my unfortunate diseases, I want to give back with fellow cancer patients. I am very proud to be a Patient Advocate with Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio.
I was diagnosed with cancer on December 13, 2013, and this changed my life. I was referred to Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio while going through treatment. The support they provided to me was incredible and I felt the desire to help others going through what I went through. I believe in what this organization is doing and am happy to help in any way I can.
I have been in treatment for Stage IV Cervical Cancer since 2011. After all of these years of interacting with support agencies as a patient I came into Cancer Connection of NorthWest Ohio to see if there were any opportunities for me to help out others. I try to add support in the office with technology to make it possible for others to concentrate on helping the patients. I am also a Certified Holistic Nutrition Counselor and try to offer any information I can to others looking to improve their health through diet.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resource Mgmt from The University of Toledo in 1999, then I decided I wanted to go into a field that directly helped others. I have always enjoyed helping other; it just makes me feel good on the inside. I worked as a Phlebotomist for 15 years learning my at the Toledo Hospital, helping people and making new friends. I graduated from Owens Community College in 2008 as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Eleven years in nursing helps me in my present position to be a good listener, a more caring empathetic and understanding individual towards others.
