From the moment I met Drea, she understood my concerns about my father's cancer diagnosis. She immediately got information from the healthcare team for me. Drea was more like a Nurse Navigator or Care Manager than just an oncology nurse. Drea understood that I was scared and couldn't bear the thought of losing someone that I loved. Drea treated my father with respect, she cared about him, and even bothered to remember how to pronounce our last name.

Drea is an angel. She deals with painful losses and amazing successes on a daily basis. She gave my father a book "Unbroken" and wrote the sweetest message of hope to him. I loved how Drea would tell us about her life and mission trips. It helped us forget temporarily about cancer. She really inspired me to be a better person.
