Is there a nurse who has given you the gift of medical care, physical comfort, and emotional support? One who has made life for you and your family a little easier?

Why not nominate this outstanding hematology-oncology nurse for the Leukemia Research Foundation Nurse of the Year Award? The award recipient will receive a nursing education grant as well as funding for a gift or program for his or her unit!

Since 1996, the LRF has annually recognized a nurse who gives his or her time, compassion, and heart each and every day to those touched by leukemia, lymphoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, or other blood cancer. The important contributions made by hematology-oncology nurses cannot be overlooked. In many ways, these nurses are the guardian angels of comfort on a difficult journey.
