Frontline Hero

My baby sister is an oncology nurse. She is so dedicated to her patients, all individuals with cancer. She travels over an hour each way to her work in New York City, risking her health and well being. No doubt she could have found work elsewhere, yet she loves her work, helping people who must have chemotherapy and other treatments, giving them excellent physical and emotional care. She has young boys, and when she's not caring for cancer patients, she's now become her children's teacher, helping them with their school work. I pray daily for her health and safety; she is my hero, and I love her.
