Gordon was one of our 2016 Extraordinary Healer Award finalists.

Diana Gordon, RN, MSN, CPNP, CPON, Division of Pediatric Hematology Oncology, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and one of our 2016 Extraordinary Healer Award finalists, discusses her passion for caring for children with cancer.

When Gordon began working with hospitalized children on the general pediatric floor early in her nursing career, she found it was the children with chronic illnesses that drew her to them, including cancer because of the ongoing therapy it required. She also found it was important to include the whole family, establishing a relationship that would give the family a sense of security.
