Pediatric Oncology nurses from Palestine, Pakistan, USA, India, Chile, Cameroon, Indonesia, and Uzbekistan discuss what being a pediatric oncology nurse means to them. This is the second video in the series “20 Stories for 2020: Pediatric Oncology Nurses in the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife”, presented by the SIOP PODC Nursing working group in celebration of pediatric oncology nurses worldwide. https://siop-online.org/nursing-working-group/
Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of YI NET Member Diana Withrow, who is sharing her experiences of volunteering at a pediatric oncology camp.
For the past six nights, I have slept on a bottom bunk and awoken to the view of the Shenandoah Valley out my window. I have shared a space smaller than my bedroom with five people – my co-counselors and three 11- and 12-year-old survivors of childhood cancer. For the girls, it was their first time at Camp Fantastic, an NIH-affiliated weeklong overnight camp in Virginia exclusively for children affected by cancer.
