My portrays impression Patricia is just not feeling very well today unfortunately she got some chemotherapy that. Kinda has left her -- -- a little down this week she'll be back next week freaky amount but just didn't feel up to coming in today tell me. About your job what you like about it why you started because you have a personal connection to working at the Jimmy. I do very much so on my brother was diagnosed with -- -- demand when I was a child and passed away when I was six years old. He was treated Children's Hospital with the most amazing nurses in the wild and they inspired -- to become an oncology nurse. Either in the -- Barbara for five years now. And I couldn't ask for at a place. So it as a six year old you're watching the nurses take care your Big Brother. And I daddy if you were inspired to do which you do. I was inspired I knew from break then and then that I was Damian -- I never elected anything else I never are -- I went -- and college and into finance songs college in New Hampshire and -- it since then. If it's it's a tough job -- what do you like about what it's rewarding because you are around people who were struggling and and I hate to say it this way but what you administered to them makes people sick. I now and it is it's definitely hard job because of that and I think that a lot of nurses that go into oncology have a personal. You know. Background because of it so we. King show a little bit more compassion we see their side of things you know we I also had a father that had cancer so I see. But the only side of things I see the patient's side and things out. For me I think you know I can relate to my patients a lot better I can kind of have better conversations with and it's -- is. Going through the steps of how it's it's not going to be easy and but we're here in Dana Farber. You have so many resources that are gonna help you out here we have. You know social services we have nutrition we have everything that we can offer to help you out -- -- As when you lose a patient. You go home and have dinner and watch TV go to bed or does it. Our -- you know I mean. We developed very close relationships work in patients as well for it expert on -- and you know you treat some of those -- transplant patients are. Months on end in there. With you every day ins and outs and you know I actually -- still friendly with a lot of patience that it treated and carried. And you know Stanley is that we're very close with families that have lost their patience and and their family members and you know it's hard it's hard to go home sometimes and kind of going to a normal life and you know go out with friends and see it like you know. It's going to be big jump to be able to align yourself to have that on oh yeah patience and you know were with Patricia was coming here today -- close with -- at some point you have to do -- jump in right and Patricia and I are very close and she calls me when she she lives in New York as well so she's not break down the street so.

Joey Joey giving Jolie would would be different now -- how long. I'm originally his type of cancer at the way it narrow last -- in the pediatric population is isn't very difficult disease to sit here so. I don't know I think that quality of life would have been a lot better for him now and in the eighties when they didn't really know the radiation process and the chemotherapy -- saying things have changed so much cents. 1984 when he -- today announced that. -- most people understand what an infusion or stuff just by definition but what about the other side of that the bedside manner technically how do you develop that how did you decide. How you're going to be with the patients and and and how involved you're going to get them personally. I think that you know from just from learning from experience from other you know nurses that I've trained with. For meat it's always been very personal cell I didn't and very involved with all of my patients it because I have such a personal connect to most of -- I can't you know I I can't separate the -- and you know my patients or family sent me a right to you know whatever I can't let them.
