The #COVID19 pandemic has highlighted the many deficiencies in our healthcare system, but has also provided an opportunity for everyone to see the heroes that walk among us every day. Doctors, nurses, respiratory therapist, physicians assistants, etc... healthcare workers who have been on the front lines taking care of patients, some of whom have been exposed to coronavirus.
When radiation therapy is required in the treatment of cancer, often it requires daily therapy for weeks. Imagine the fear that patients might having coming in to clinic every day, risking exposure. In the field of radiation oncology, the real frontline staff are the therapists who treat patients every day, building report, easing fears, and delivering excellent care. This tribute is dedicated to these therapists and radiation oncology nurses who help triage and care for our patients.
Thank you for all that you do.
