How wonderful it is to celebrate twenty years of Gilda’s Club being here for people with cancer and their families and friends!

The 3 C’s of Oncology Nursing: Care, Compassion, Commitment

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Oncology nurses are on the front lines of patient care providing support and comfort along the cancer journey. According to the Gallup Poll, nurses are the most trusted profession and we would not attain this status without care, compassion and commitment–the theme of the 2015 Oncology Nursing Month (ONM).

In honor of ONM, I would like to highlight some of ONS’s policy efforts impacting the work of the oncology nurse and the patients we serve.

Cyclists Turn Up the Heat in Southern California

Monday, May 13, 2013

It’s been a hot first couple of days in southern California, and I’m not just talking about the weather! The Amgen Tour of California kicked off Sunday in Escondido, a city just north of San Diego.
