    I am in school in the Master's in science in nursing/education. I want to teach either nursing students in emergency medicine or cancer care. Or teach cancer patients as a nurse navigator.

      That's a great field to be in, many of us wouldn't be here without great nurses and caregivers.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): although surgery went great and I was released just 2 days later..was off work one month and did not have to have chemo YEAH!!!! to this day I remain sore where surgery was done I am in school now (on-line). The impact to my daily life is still a concern as I am not able to do the things I could before my cancer dx.
