When A was first diagnosed with her brain tumors, she was in 6th grade and we lived in another town than the one we live in now. The school nurse was so amazing with her right from the get go. She carried A to our car the day she was diagnosed after collapsing in the hallway at school. When A was able to return to school, she had a wheelchair for A to use whenever she tired out so we wouldn't have to drag hers to school every day. She would sit next to A, hold her hair when she was ill from her chemo and would rub her back when she was lying down. All and all she was an amazing woman whom A thought the world of. She was an unending source of support and encouragement to me when I was still realing from A's diagnosis. She personaly collected $500 from the teachers and staff at the school to help with the expenses of getting A to her Dr. appointments.
Last spring the nurse lost controll of her car, hit a tree and was killed instantly. A and I were both devistated. Tonight the school is dedicationg a new outdoor classroom in her honor and we really want to go but since I spent wheat money I had on groceries, there is no gas to.
