UST‘61 grad. At outset, did special nursing while waiting for board results. Off to US of A in Sept’62 for a 1 year onco nursing internship at James Ewing Hospital. And another year with the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. That year in public health nursing opened my eyes to the realities of racial discrimination. It was then that I had second thoughts about renewing my visa. Working abroad was not for me.
Back home in ’64, did special nursing exclusively for post operative cancer patients til I got married in ’65. Two girls and a boy plus 6 grandchildren later, I still miss nursing. And take every opportunity, and excuse, to do health-related volunteer work, including zero waste advocacy, when I’m not dealing with land and legal concerns of family and clan.
The recent death of a destitute cancer victim unable to avail of expensive orthodox treatment moved me to start blogging and share what I have learned over the years about a natural and non-toxic way of treating cancer that costs and hurts much much less compared to chemotherapy and radiation.
