How do we ever begin to thank the nursing staff who are the heartbeat of our hospitals?

In particular, as a sarcoma organisation, we would like to highlight the national network of truly remarkable sarcoma nurse consultants and specialist nurses,  who help sarcoma patients daily to navigate the uncertain waters of their diagnosis.

Finally we would like to recognise the outstanding work of our own Keith Cox, OAM, for five decades of nursing, predominantly  as an oncology nurse and nursing practitioner.  To gain a valuable insight into the life of a nurse, Keith’s book is being launched today at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, and is available through  Pan Macmillan.

“When you’re a nurse, you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.” —Unknown
