"...Not everyone can be a nurse..."
Kelli Baker, Nursing Student
Transcript“When my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2005, my whole family’s life was changed. When we heard she was going to have to have radiation and chemotherapy, we were scared. I would hold my mom’s hand while she sat in a chair with the IV putting the poison inside of her. I knew things were going to change. She would lose her hair and become very sick. I kept telling her that after it rains the sun will shine. I knew from then on that I wanted to be a nurse. If I could change someone’s life, I would do anything to make that happen. I want to make a difference and care for them. My grandma, aunt, and uncle are all nurses and that has just influenced me even more. Not everyone can be a nurse. It is not about money, it is about compassion, heart, and understanding.”
