I'm 24 and a cancer survivor. I currently have a hole in my bladder. I live in Greenville, Pa. which is about 1.5 hours away. I was sent here in the middle of the night from my home hospital. Lynn was my nurse.
I was scared and in so much pain. My mom was unable to drive down until the morning. Lynn was so kind to me. She made sure to get my pain under control, she stayed with me and answered all my questions. She made sure that I was okay and she made me feel so much better about being homesick. After she finished my admission she still came in to check on me.
I'm back again for the second time and I got the pleasure of Lynn being my nurse again. Lynn made sure I was okay. She has so much heart and love for job and her patients! I absolutely adore her in every way!
