"...It came back that I had Thyroid cancer. I was only 25 years old at the time of diagnosis. I had just received the phone call that I got into nursing school. It was a bit heartbreaking to be able to deal with all of it as far as going to nursing school, being a mother of two boys and now battling Thyroid cancer. It's hard. A lot of people think Thyroid cancer is a good cancer because it's slow growing but you actually live with the repercussions of it every single day." Alex Falco, ER RN. #RealCaregiversRealStories
"For all my nursing students out there, just stay strong. It is very difficult. You do have a lot of work. The care plans, the med cards, the tests, the exams, the quizzes. It is overwhelming, but if this is what you want to do and you know for sure this is for you, keep going. Do not give up. Stay strong, stay positive, keep your mind at the end of the prize which is graduating nursing school and being an amazing nurse." Alex Falco, ASN, RN, B.A. #RealCaregiversRealStories
