Donor Perspective


The Oncology Nursing Foundation is a charity I support financially because, quite simply, I believe wholeheartedly in its mission statement to improve cancer care and the lives of those with cancer. More importantly, I believe that the Foundation effectively carries out this mission through the various programs it funds. As an oncology nurse, I have a vested interest in helping my peers continue to improve and develop both professionally and academically.

I believe in the value of oncology nursing. I have been a caregiver for three family members with cancer and an oncology nurse for more than 30 years. Oncology nurses play a unique role in helping patients with cancer to manage and live with their disease and treatment. 

Through my support of the Oncology Nursing Foundation, I can thank oncology nurses for all of the wonderful things they do every day, and through the work of these nurses, improve care for patients with cancer.  What a great return on my investment!

I have been an oncology nurse for more than 30 years; Twenty-five years ago I was the fortunate recipient of “an Oncology Nursing Foundation Master’s Scholarship. That scholarship enabled me to complete my degree in two years with minimal debt. For that I am and will be forever grateful. 

I promised myself that I would someday give back to the Foundation. For many years, I volunteered for several national committees, and today I continue to review awards and scholarship applications. In the last few years I have been able to financially contribute to the Foundation. It gives me great pleasure to give back to an organization that has given me so much both professionally and personally.
