Oncology Nurse Rises Above to Advocate for Patients With Cancer

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

One person details how an oncology nurse rises above all challenges to help her patients with cancer throughout the grueling parts of treatment.

Donna Rebecca Garner, RN, from the Southern Cancer Center in Daphne, Alabama, is one of the most caring individuals I have ever met. She goes above and beyond for every patient no matter what the case may be. Whether it be getting a medication approved, getting same day scans/appointments or just being a shoulder to lean on, she is always there. Rebecca is kind, trustworthy and is not scared of hard work. Rebecca is the best advocate for our patients. She is truly an amazing person.
