Compassion and Courage Define Cancer Nurses

Extraordinary Healer®, Extraordinary Healer® Vol. 15, Volume 15,

A cancer nurse focuses on alleviating or reducing the anxiety patients often feel when undergoing cancer treatment.

The work performed by Jeannette Mazzola, M.S.N., APRN-CNP, AOCNP, AGPCNP-BC, exemplifies that of a dedicated medical professional whose major focus is that of her patients. Her unwavering commitment and care that she exhibits to them is a testament in and of itself. Her knowledge and comforting ways ease the anxiety that most patients with cancer experience.

Jeanette is more than deserving of this special recognition for continuing the outstanding medical care to her patients.

In conclusion, I would like to say that courage and compassion define her. She is truly a compliment to her profession.
