Yesterday was my three month multiple myeloma check-up at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Before I head out for an early morning meeting, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to my two wonderful Infusion Center nurses, Stephanie and Trinh. Stephanie recently moved to Florida from Philadelphia along with her husband, a physician who also works at Moffitt. Her nickname is “One Stick Stephanie.” One of the best IV placements I have ever experienced–always an unexpected pleasure! After all of the poking and proding and IV’s and blood draws I was a bit “out of it” by day’s end. Trinh stepped in and made sure I was OK and got me ready to get back home. Thanks Trinh! Thanks Stephanie! You were both personable, helpful and professional. Nurses rule!
While I was there, getting my two hour Aredia IV, I had the opportunity to write an article about the Moffitt Diversity Program.
I had kept notes from a meeting I had with Program Director Cathy Grant and Professor Lee Green last month. Here is a link to the article: Moffitt Diversity Program Helping Recruit Tampa Area Minority Patients & Staff.
Overall, I continue to be impressed with my Moffitt experience. Lots of great, caring, hard working people.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
