My heartfelt thanks to all x

I have been a registered nurse for almost 30 years, here in Canada and in the UK. One of the greatest privileges of being a nurse is that people I meet have stories to tell and want to share them with me. I believe everyone has a story that has value and is worth sharing.
I have been writing for about 9 years - discovering that I have stories too and I'm darn well going to tell them -The section above says it all!
