I love what the ice bucket challenge did. I love that it brought so much awareness to a disease that has brought so much heartache to so many people.
This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. It’s a cause that hits really close to home to me because it hit my home as a first time new mom.
I’m an oncology nurse. I knew when I signed up for the job that it was a tough one and that tough conversations was part of it.
My name is Christa Thieme, and I’ve been asked to be a guest writer, and share my story because this month is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
I love to sew things for my family and friends but I am also always on the lookout for ways that I can help others with my talents.
My goal as nurse has always included pediatric oncology. While I have not worked with anyone younger than 18 with cancer, pediatric cancer is still a strong passion of mine.
