My Nurse Navigator

By CHI Health October 20, 2010 Posted in: Patient Stories

Eighteen months ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My surgeon, Dr. Imbrock, contacted the cancer nurse navigators, and that’s how I met Amy Graber.

Amy has been such a blessing and really lived up to her title: navigator. She helped us make appointments for tests, answered many, many questions, held my hand during the scariest times, and became a very good friend to my husband and me. She truly helped us get through some really tough months.

We still keep in contact and I know I can call her with any question or just to say hello. The nurse navigators at CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy are just wonderful and make such a difference in the lives of their patients.
