I was diagnosed in 2012 with AML. Linda was with me from the beginning. She calmly sat with me and explained anything I asked. She always made me feel that I was her only patient (which of course I wasn't). During the past two years, I've had to be admitted for a stem cell transplant plus a few other things. Linda would welcome me back with a few words written on the white board. She always says good-bye when her shift is over. I feel so safe when she's my nurse. It eases my stress, so I feel better. She's very knowledgeable about all aspects of my disease. I can talk to her about anything. She has a beautiful smile and even thought it's tough being an inpatient in a cancer facility, Linda makes the time here more pleasant! I can honestly say I love her like a member of my family. She has helped me so much!
