Susan Cahoon personifies compassionate nursing. The Radiation Oncology team treated a patient with oral cancer. The patient had severe complications from surgery and needed care from a skilled nursing facility. This patient was the sole caregiver of elderly parents who lived more than two hours away. The patient was unable to communicate because of a tracheostomy and worried about getting updates to family members. At the patient’s request, Susan made weekly phone calls to the patient’s mother, during a three-month period, to update her on the patient’s condition. Susan’s kindness eased their minds and allowed them to get through the ordeal without further hardships. We recognize Susan for going above and beyond for our patients.
