Thankful for Amy

By CHI Health October 07, 2010 Posted in: Patient Stories

As anyone hearing the news for the first time that you have cancer, it is just such a shock and very hard to grasp all that is going on.  But then Amy comes into my life and what a godsend.  I know it is an option to accept the nurse navigators; but anyone who does not, does not know what they are missing.

To make a long story short, Amy kept my life organized throughout the year.  She made my doctors’ appointments, talked to other nurses at various offices,  broke things down into something that I could understand, was always there for my visits and we became friends as well.  I truly do not think I could have gotten through the year without her.  She somehow made the bad times better and easier.

I am thankful for Amy and the nurse navigator program from the bottom of my heart.  I try to recommend the program to anyone I hear of that has been diagnosed.  It is a great support program when your family cannot understand what you are going through as well.

Again, Thank You Amy!!!!
