I never really thought about what I did as being anything great. It just seemed like a very little, small contribution that I could make along the way. And I think the part that worked so well is that I do have a tremendous knowledge about breast cancer and treatments and cutting-edge stuff, which is my oncology nursing experience, which helps me do a better job at the activism piece...
[The nursing and the activism] really fit together well. One thing that baffles me is why every single oncology nurse isn't involved in some sort of activism. As oncology nurses, we should all be walking the halls of Congress and being involved in issues. And as women, we should all be involved in women's issues. That's a no-brainer.
