Hello. My name is Kara and I am 43 years old. I entered the caregiving/nursing world when my Son was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 3.

I was unable to finish nursing school due to my sons many battles with leukemia but through it I obtained so much knowledge from taking care of him and going to school. I have cared for many people with many different needs and I easily adapt to new patients and their specific needs. I very much find peace in helping others & maintaining as much normalcy/independence as possible f or them. Along with some laughs & smiles. ... more

This is part of my personal background but also is why I entered the world of caregiving/nursing. My son was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL) at the age of 3. This battle included several relapses, radiation & 2 bone marrow transplants. I was his lead caregiver/Mom..So my knowledge is huge in the area of Leukemia & the battle that comes with it.
