“A cancer diagnosis can be unexpected and overwhelming. Almost everyone has been touched in some way by cancer, whether they are a cancer survivor or their friend or family member has been diagnosed with some form of cancer.
Oncology to me is such a special field to be in, and the science has always fascinated me. But the patients, and my ability to develop long-term relationships with them and their families, are the main reasons I chose this field. Caring for patients at such a vulnerable time in their life is a privilege, and something I don’t take lightly. Helping people navigate their treatment trajectory while also helping develop and carry out their treatment plan is what attracted to me to a career in cancer care.”
