Dr. Lillian Nail, PhD, RN, FAAN and a Komen-funded breast cancer researcher and oncology nurse, visited students of CSM’s nursing program. Her presentation “Becoming a Survivor” highlighted some of the pre- and post-care issues cancer patients face. “Cancer care has completely changed. In the past, cancer treatment was done almost entirely in the hospital and if you survived you went home and you didn’t talk about it,” said Nail, who noted that surviving cancer is “out of the closet…people talk about it, share their stories and hope.”
