Lymphoma News Today‘s resident columnist, Radiant Racheli, also used National Nurses Week as an opportunity to express her gratitude to all the wonderful nurses she’s met on her journey. The ones that were there to hold her hand when she got scared, help her realize that once she left the hospital she was no longer just a cancer patient, and help with practical things like insurance forms, referrals, and pharmacy fills.
